State funds available for college visits

The state of New York is making $500,000 available to provide low income students with the chance to visit colleges.

The college access challenge grant program provides up to $45,000  to programs that provide college tours to poor students.

Governor Cuomo says that while these visits are a rite of passage for many high school seniors, but the expense is often beyond the reach for many low income families.
