Most of these trainings are now done at proprietary schools and we are being told that the bill will remove that training already now existing and obtaining funding from those mom and pop, local schools. I don't see where you mentioned this and this is important to mention. If you're telling the news, please share it all.

Linda, thanks for your comment! The version of short-term Pell grants included in this bill would only be eligible to students at public and non-profit private institutions. However, no funds would be removed from proprietary schools or any other institutions -- and this shouldn't effect training programs at those institutions at all. Any existing training at any institution would be able to continue, this bill would just provide a few more students with access to federal Pell grants. Feel free to email me at [email protected] if you have any additional questions!
