Local College Access
Q2030 21st Century Workforce submitted an application for a Planning Grant in late October, 2016.
Iowa College Student Aid Commission (Iowa College Aid) has Planning Grants available, ranging between $5,000 and $10,000, to conduct a strategic planning process to organize and initiate a community-based local college access network (LCAN). The purpose of these LCANs is to increase the college attainment of particular communities in Iowa as part of the College Changes Everything initiative. The process for this Planning Grant and subsequent Launch Grants (available to selected communities) has been adapted from the successful LCAN structure pioneered by the Michigan College Access Network (MCAN), using the Collective Impact framework for local cross-sector collaboration to solve complex social problems.
In addition to the financial grant, Iowa College Aid will provide training and technical assistance to grant recipients. While the guidebook was written for Michigan, it was underwritten by the Lumina Foundation with the intent of providing a replicate framework for other states and communities.
