Last year, Michigan Reconnect and Futures for Frontliners were launched, giving residents aged 25+ or those working on the frontlines of the pandemic, the opportunity to receive free education at Michigan’s community colleges. This vital support is needed now more important than ever - but funding for these programs is in jeopardy!
Elimination or reduction of these programs would take skill building and career advancement opportunities away from the 150,000 Michigan residents who applied to participate, just as they are getting their coursework started.
The Michigan House and Senate have begun moving the Fiscal Year 2021-2022 budgets – and they fail to prioritize these critical programs.
Please use this form to contact your legislators today and tell them to prioritize funding to support Michigan community college students in these programs in the Fiscal Year 2021-2022 budget. Feel free to customize your story!
