APC Action Alert!

Hello Everyone,

We need your help! The Assembly and Senate heard our calls to protect and strengthen the Tuition Assistance Program (TAP). The Assembly is proposing a $100 increase to the maximum TAP award and the Senate is seeking to increase income eligibility from $80,000 to $100,000. These are fantastic proposals. However, we must engage now! It is essential that we commend lawmakers for strengthening TAP and encourage them to work together and pass these measures.

To do so, we would like your students, faculty and staff to take part in a social media advocacy effort. Starting Monday, March 21 through Wednesday, March 24, we ask that participants send affirmative and constructive Twitter messages to lawmakers and let them know just how important TAP is.

Please remember to use the hashtag: #TAPSuccess.

We only have a few days to make a significant impact, so let’s get moving!
