[RECORDING] Vera Institute Hosting Pell Reinstatement Regulations Webinar
November 17, 2022
The U.S. Department of Education (ED) has published final regulations about Pell Grant reinstatement. These rules stipulate the requirements colleges with approved prison education programs (PEPs) must follow in order for students who are incarcerated to be eligible to access Pell Grants for an academic credential.
The Vera Institute of Justice (Vera) hosted a webinar about key takeaways from the final rules for college PEPs, departments of corrections, and accreditation agencies. These rules will also have important implications for potential students and opportunities for community-based partners. At the end of the webinar there is a Q&A session that includes members of the Department of Education.
