Congress’s free community college plan could benefit 8 million students, with the right funding formula

In this model, 1,029 institutions in fifty states and seven territories would qualify as either community colleges or tribal colleges, for a total of 8 million eligible students on a headcount basis. Under this model, federal allocations would total $83 billion over the first five years of ACP.”
