AB 469 (Reyes) Requires local education agencies to ensure that all high school seniors complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or the California DREAM Act application (CADAA) beginning in the 2021-22 academic year.

AB 1456 (Medina) Converts the Cal Grant program into a state aid model based on student need rather than simply using outdated criteria such as age and time out of high school to create a much more inclusive and comprehensive financial aid system.
