Budget and Appropriations

The Issue

​​​​​The federal government supports the work of colleges and universities by funding programs for student financial aid, scientific research, institutional support, and other activities. ACE monitors the annual federal budget and appropriations process from start to finish, with a particular focus on how the decisions made may impact student aid. Throughout the process, ACE Government Relations staff members meet with congressional staff, advocate for appropriate funding, analyze policy, and review and advise on legislation.
