Kentucky students will now have more help this upcoming fall in paying for school. The Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA) and Kentucky Council will be providing more state funding supported by Gov. Andy Beshear and the Kentucky General Assembly.

According to the press release, those students who need financial aid to pay for college or technical training will be eligible for College Access Program (CAP) grants, which provide need-based assistance to undergrad students.

Gov. Beshear said in his press conference earlier, "Education is one of my administration's top priorities...,"

For the 2021-22 school year CAP grants are said to offer students up to $2,900 at eligible 4-year institutions and $2,200 at state-eligible community/technical colleges. With increases from CAP and Federal pell grants to $6,495 for 2022, KHEAA says, many students could have all their colleges paid for.

It's going to be a beautiful afternoon with highs topping out in the low to mid 60s. You better enjoy today because rain chances are moving in tonight. Unfortunately, they'll be sticking around for the weekend. Saturday and Sunday will have pop up shower chances with highs in the upper 50s and lower 60s.
