CLASP’s Benefits Access for College Completion (BACC) initiative will test innovative approaches

CLASP’s Benefits Access for College Completion (BACC) initiative will test innovative approaches to connecting low-income students with public benefits such as childcare subsidies and food assistance. The program investigates whether coordinated income supports enable more students to stay in school longer and complete their studies more quickly. CLASP’s three-year, $4.84 million initiative is supported by the Open Society Foundations and the Ford, Kresge, Lumina, and Annie E. Casey foundations. 11/13/2012
