Federal Aid For Postsecondary Students

In 2017, the government financed roughly $100 billion in student loans and provided about $30 billion in grants and $30 billion in tax preferences. A report from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) examines the impact of such aid and a number of approaches to changing it.
