The US Department of Education will soon publish final regulations about Pell Grant reinstatement. These rules will stipulate the requirements colleges with approved prison education programs (PEPs) must follow in order for students who are incarcerated to be eligible to access Pell Grants for an academic credential. Vera is hosting this free webinar about key takeaways from the final rules for college PEPs, departments of corrections, and accreditation agencies. These rules will also have important implications for potential students and opportunities for community-based partners. At the end of the webinar there will be a Q&A session that will include members of the Department of Education.
