DCCCD supports sufficient base funding for all community colleges.

The 82nd Legislature should support community colleges by investing sufficient base funding in the amount of $2.286 billion. This funding consists of $1.844 billion (base formula amount from the last state budget) and $442 million for the unprecedented growth in student enrollment at community colleges over the past two years.

Community colleges in Texas are playing an essential role as the state struggles to meet growing educational demand. For these institutions to remain affordable and accessible the state must provide sufficient base funding including the extraordinary increase in enrollments at community colleges.
