Capps to Attend Cash for College Workshops Along Central Coast

Rep. Lois Capps, D-Santa Barbara, will attend a series of Cash for College workshops this week along the Central Coast.

The workshops are put on by the California Student Aid Commission to provide assistance with the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and Cal Grant forms to students and their families.

Each year starting in January running up to the March 2 deadline, the California Student Aid Commission helps organize workshops throughout the state to provide resources and information for students and their families as they apply for college financial assistance.

“College affordability is on the minds of many Central Coast students and parents this time of year," Capps said. “That is why I applaud the work that the California Student Aid Commission and the Central Coast Student Opportunity and Access Program (Cal-SOAP) Consortium for the work they are doing to provide vital college affordability information.

"Now more than ever, it’s critical that students and their families have a clear understanding of the costs of college, as well as the assistance that may be available to make college a reality.”

C.J. Young is a press assistant for Rep. Lois Capps, D-Santa Barbara.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.
