CLASP has several new resources that address the challenges facing postsecondary students with low incomes. One is a report we wrote for a series published by the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (NASFAA). In the paper, we discuss the important role of public benefits in meeting the basic needs of college students and in streamlining and maximizing financial aid. Another is a blog with guidance for college administrators about the interplay between work-study programs and SNAP during the pandemic. And, finally, Lauren Walizer appeared on a NASFAA podcast to discuss our paper.
