News & Notes
SACRAMENTO, Calif. – On January 8, 2020, Governor Newsom submitted his 2021-22 State Budget proposal to the Legislature, totaling $227.2 billion. This budget shows a clear and resounding commitment to students. We are thankful for the reduction of deferrals and investments in student supports and grants. Most notably, we are pleased that the budget includes $250 million one-time Prop 98 funds for emergency financial aid grants, $100 million one-time Prop 98 funds to address food and housing insecurity, and $30 million ongoing Prop 98 funds for technology access and mental health resources.
The Student Senate for California Community Colleges (SSCCC) represents students from the most diverse student population in the nation, California community colleges. After the unjust murder of George Floyd in May 2020, the SSCCC began to work actively within the higher education system to initiate change because we had seen too much of others talking about the issue without taking meaningful action.
