From the Document: "On November 19, 2021, the House passed H.R. 5376, the Build Back Better Act (BBBA), pursuant to the reconciliation instructions included in Section 2002 of S.Con.Res. 14, the Concurrent Budget Resolution for FY2022. Title II of the BBBA contains provisions from the House Committee on Education and Labor. Within Title II, the BBBA contains several provisions that temporarily address a variety of higher education issues. This In Focus provides descriptions of several higher education provisions included in Title II of the bill, which generally would provide additional funding for existing programs or provide funding for newly established programs. The provisions variously sunset or the funding expires before or on September 30, 2030. Other BBBA provisions outside of Title II may support higher education but are beyond the scope of this In Focus. The In Focus begins with descriptions of the BBBA Title II provisions that affect the provision of federal student aid authorized under Title IV of the Higher Education Act (HEA) and a newly created student aid program. This is followed by descriptions of provisions that would provide grants to support a variety of activities to improve postsecondary education outcomes and education programs. Finally, it describes BBBA Title II provisions to support minority-serving institutions, teacher preparation programs, and career and technical education."
