SpotlightSunday ✨ Congress May Soon Give Federal Pell Grants For College Inmates [PHOTO]

Congress wants to give people behind bars more access to higher education.

If a new bipartisan bill is passed, it will give federal Pell Grants to low-income students.

This will allow them to take college classes and workforce training. For over two decades, there was a ban on inmates using Pell, so if this gets passed, it would be a big move for criminal reform movements.

When people in prison have an opportunity to earn an education, it gives them a chance to rebuild their life and reduces their risk of returning back.
