Clare McCann was quoted in Inside Higher Ed on how Congress could amplify new funding by using it as an incentive for additional state support of public colleges:

"You could use it to increase the Pell Grant, or to index the Pell Grant to inflation for a couple of years. Or you could use it some other way, for some version of need-based or campus-based aid," said Clare McCann, deputy director of higher education policy at New America. "Or you could also invest in a state-federal partnership, to get some ripple effects from the additional funding."
