Funding for Adult Ed

Good morning,

I am sharing news that today, Congress announced funding levels for its fiscal year (FY) 2022 appropriations bill, which includes $690 million for adult education. COABE is extremely excited to see Congress recognize the value and importance of adult education by providing an increase of $15.5 million to the Adult Education State Grant program.

This bill still needs to be passed by the House and Senate to become final law, and we plan to send an email out to our members to encourage them to continue their efforts reaching out to legislators.

Adult education can be the leader in strengthening the economy during recovery from the pandemic, when funded appropriately. We are proud of the progress that has been made thus far and need all hands on deck to fight for additional funding in the FY23 appropriations process and the reconciliation bill. Please keep an eye out for the email that will hit inboxes shortly, and take action for adult education!

Have a wonderful day,

Sharon Bonney
