The letter thanks appropriators for the continued increase in ESSA Title IV, Part A funding in the 2019 enacted education appropriations bill and outlines key funding priorities for the FY2020 appropriations cycle. The letter was sent to the chairs of both the Senate and House Committees on Appropriations and the Labor-HHS-Education and Commerce-Justice-Science subcommittee chairs of both chambers. The Coalition has prioritized vital programs at both the Department of Education and National Science Foundation. You can read the full letter here.
