Informational forum on Real Hope Act comes to Pasco

PASCO, Wash. -- An informational forum in Pasco Friday afternoon will explain a new law aimed to help undocumented students apply for financial aid.

The forum at Columbia Basin College will focus on the Real Hope Act, which became law earlier this year. State funding could be distributed to students as early as this fall.

Speakers will tell students who qualifies for aid, how to apply, and how the aid can be used.

The event will start at 3 p.m. at the Hub.

The forum is sponsored by ESD 123, the Latino/a Educational Achievement Project, the Washington Student Achievement Council, and CBC.
