|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.|
