Act 101 Program Update

The Pennsylvania General Assembly appropriates funds to PHEAA for the Pennsylvania State Grant and other programs. PHEAA has reviewed the actions of the General Assembly and the Governor. We are working to confirm awards and/or disburse funds for the current 2015-16 Academic Year as quickly as possible. Please note that this affects all state and federal programs administered by PHEAA.

PHEAA's Act 101 program is a state-funded program which allocates funds to Pennsylvania schools that operate an Act 101 program at their institution. Schools use these funds to provide services to academically and financially disadvantaged students to assist them so they can successfully complete postsecondary study.

A new Participation Agreement is not required for schools currently participating in the Act 101 program.
