Task Force Findings in CASE Community College Grant Community

A task force exploring federal funding opportunities for community colleges has released its first findings in the CASE Community College Grants Community.

The Federal Funding to Two-Year Colleges report is produced by the Federal Funding Task Force, a group of volunteers who meet annually in Washington, D.C., with federal agencies about funding programs. Chair Heather Layton, co-chair Michelle Alexander and 60 other volunteers wrapped up this year's research trip on Oct. 26.

During this visit, they met and discussed anticipated funding levels and program priorities, updated agency contacts and requested comparison data on funds applied for and grants awarded to community colleges in previous funding cycles.

While the FFTF advocates on behalf of two-year colleges, the report will be available for all CASE members, and the details of the fund opportunities may be of benefit to four-year institutions.

"What makes this special is, if you are new to the field of resource development, you can see the vast majority of what's available," said Layton.

The FFTF was created by the Council for Resource Development, which successfully managed the program until July 2016, when it became an initiative of the CASE Center for Community College Advancement.

The Federal Funding to Two-Year Colleges report will be made available exclusively to CASE members upon completion.
