HARRISBURG – State Rep. Sheryl Delozier (R-Cumberland) has been re-elected as the chairman of the executive committee for the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA).
“It is truly an honor to be re-elected to this important position,” Delozier said. “Since PHEAA’s inception in 1963, the organization has successfully created a pathway for affordable higher education for our children. It now has evolved into one of the nation’s leading student aid organizations, and I am proud to be a part of the effort.”
PHEAA operates in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Education under the Federal Family Education Loan Program or FFEL Program. The grants and loans issued by the agency can be for college or for education at a technical or trade school.
“The committee’s primary focus is to help make post-secondary education affordable for students across the state,” Delozier said. “Those that are graduating should take the opportunity to have access to the FASFA form at www.studentaid.gov, so that you have the opportunity for all possible assistance before the May deadline. We all need to work together to start our future leaders on the right path with the least amount of debt.”
PHEAA’s business earnings are used to support its public service mission and pay its operating costs, including the administration of the PA State Grant Program and other student aid programs. This saves taxpayers millions of dollars annually while ensuring that every dollar that the General Assembly appropriates to a student aid program goes directly to Pennsylvania students.
Over the last 10 years, PHEAA has provided nearly $1 billion from its business earnings to support student aid programs for Pennsylvania students and families.
