News & Notes
SACRAMENTO, Calif. – The Student Senate for California Community Colleges (SSCCC) appreciates Governor Newsom’s continued dedication to California’s community college students in the 2023 - 24 January budget proposal. SSCCC supports the significant 8.13% cost-of-living-adjustment, increased funding for the Higher Education Student Housing Grant Program, and full implementation of Cal Grant reform.
SACRAMENTO, Calif. – On January 10, 2022, Governor Newsom submitted his 2022-23 State Budget proposal to the Legislature, totaling $286 billion - approximately 9% more than last year. This year’s budget is focused on access and affordability, equity, and innovation and includes a five-year commitment to all three higher education segments - University of California, California State University, and California Community Colleges - as well as a 5% increase each year. This multi-year framework invests sustained funding to ensure a commitment from each segment to expand access, equity, and affordability and provides a clear commitment to students by closing the equity gap and assisting students to complete their programs through to their target goals. This framework also creates a more coordinated effort to better align the three segments of higher education.
