The mission of the Federal Pell Grant Program is to ensure that eligible recipients enrolled in any of the 42 technical college campuses will receive the grant funds according to the mandates of federal law.

The goal of the Federal Pell Grant Program is to distribute the grant funds in a timely fashion which will enable the students to cover the costs associated with their education.

OBJECTIVES AND PERFORMANCE INDICATORS

Unless otherwise indicated, all objectives are to be accomplished during or by the end of FY 1999-2000. Performance indicators are made up of two parts: name and value.

For budgeting purposes, performance indicator values are shown for the prior fiscal year, the current fiscal year, and alternative funding scenarios (continuation budget level and Executive Budget recommendation level) for the ensuing fiscal year (the fiscal year of the budget document).
