Budget Issue: Decentralize Cal Grant delivery
Program: Student Aid Commission
Finding or Recommendation: Recommend the Legislature enact legislation to decentralize Cal Grants. We offer several specific recommendations to improve student-centered delivery of state financial aid at the campus level; reduce duplication of functions between campuses, system offices, and the state; and improve both the effectiveness and efficiency of the state's financial aid enterprise.
