All In for FAFSA/CA Dream Act


All In for FAFSA/CA Dream Act” is an initiative that assists school districts in ensuring that high school seniors complete and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or the California Dream Act Application (CADAA). Local Educational Agencies must ensure that all 12th-grade students complete the applications starting in the 2022–23 school year.

Completing these applications increase students’ access to financial aid—including the Pell Grant, Cal Grant, Community College Promise Grant, and so much more. By connecting students to critical financial aid, “All in for FAFSA/CA Dream Act” supports California’s vision to increase access to higher education and connect more students with over $3.5 billion in state-based financial aid each year.
