Webinar Logo Significant changes to the Pell Grant eligibility criteria and federal methodology (FM) formula are on the horizon, including a new name for the expected family contribution (EFC), which has become the Student Aid Index (SAI). The revamped formula includes higher income protection allowances (IPA), elimination of the state and other tax allowance against income, elimination of many forms of untaxed income and excludable income, addition of small businesses and family farm assets, elimination of consideration of more than one family member in college, and more. Join NASFAA's Jackie Cottom to take a deep dive into the new SAI.
