Iowa College Aid awards LCAN grants to 11 Iowa communities


Iowa College Aid has awarded more than $460,000 in grants to 11 Iowa communities so far in fiscal year 2023 to fund Local College Access Networks. According to a press release, the LCAN grant series is a four-year model with annual awards averaging near $50,000. Each LCAN assesses the needs of its community and works to fill the gaps in partnership with local colleges, school districts, area education agencies, business groups, elected officials, employers and community and religious organizations. LCANs identify community goals that focus on increasing college attainment and building increased FAFSA completion into their identified goals. The newest initiative to receive LCAN funding is Math Pathways to Success, a statewide effort that focuses on eliminating barriers to college attainment that arise in the transition from high school to postsecondary math courses. Supplemental support was also awarded to three LCAN communities that recently finished the grant series. More information is available at IowaCollegeAid.gov/LCANs
