Summary

Focusing on the role of community colleges in providing affordable access to postsecondary education, this two-part monograph reviews college services and federal aid programs for college students and provides projections of federal aid for 1998-99. The first part reviews the role of the colleges in the modern economy, highlighting such efforts as workforce development, distance learning, programs for under-served populations, leadership in teaching and learning, and remedial education. This part also describes three new federal investments in education established by the Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997: the Hope Scholarship (HS), providing tax credits for 1- and 2-year certificate programs; the Lifetime Learning Tax Credit (LLTC), providing 20% credits for programs beyond the first 2 years of college; and increases in the Pell Grant program to $3,000, making an additional 130,000 students eligible for the program. The second part then provides estimates of the impact of these three programs on community college students in 1998-99, including tables of dollar amounts expected to be provided by each program nationally and by state, as well as estimates by state of the number of people expected to be served by each program.
