National Skills Coalition: PROSPER Act moves forward in the House

The PROSPER Act, in its current form, extends Pell eligibility to short-term programs that are at least 300 clock hours of instruction over 10 weeks but includes no employer engagement to ensure that these programs are aligned with industry needs. Several organizations, including Higher Learning Advocates and AdvanceCTE joined NSC in members of the House and Senate to advocate for the inclusion of JOBS Act language in any final HEA reauthorization.
