"President Joe Biden delivered his latest offer to Congress on his plan to expand safety-net and climate change programs Thursday, the result of months of talks with lawmakers to pare down his original proposal," USA Today reports.
..."The new framework does not include free community college, a 2020 Biden campaign promise that was part of earlier versions of the plan. Biden acknowledged last week during a televised town hall that free community college would not make the final cut as he and other Democrats negotiated over the final framework.
The proposal expands the maximum Pell grant for low-income students by $550. For the 2021-22 academic year, Pell grants ranged from $650 to $6,495, according to the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators."
