A coronavirus relief package of $ 900 billion, which is expected that the Congress on Monday at night gives schools and universities another $ 23 billion in help of relief, which the Head of the American Council of Education was beaten as "totally inadequate".

Congress leaders are expected to pass a larger budget agreement of $ 1.4 billion traded to finance the government until next September. The proposed agreement would bring an additional $ 1 billion in spending on medical research, as well as important changes to financial aid, including the simplification of the free request for federal aid for students from 108 to 36 questions, and to offer the President of the Republican Education Committee, Lamar Alexander, one of its Top. Days of priorities before they are withdrawn from the congress. It also includes a series of democratic priorities, including allowing more imprisoned prisoners to be eligible for Pe Pell subsidies. President Trump is expected to firm both parties of the legislation

a change in how eligibility is determined for Peel Subsidies, it will also facilitate the minor income students receive the maximum amount of Federal Student Help. Alexander and Patty Murray, the main Democrat on the Senate Education Committee, estimated that the changes would mean that the 555,000 additional students will Qualify for Peec grants each year and 1.7 million students will Qualify to receive the maximum Pe Pell Award each year.
