The FAFSA Plus Project Team began convening in August 2019 to work collectively to increase the FAFSA completion rate for high school seniors across Brown County. This team consists of 14 community leaders from 11 distinct local organizations including higher education institutions, non-profits & businesses. Their goal is to develop a system to determine families and students that need support and to deliver those supports. The team has expanded their focus on increasing FAFSA completion to also addressing the needs of non-FAFSA eligible students and families in terms of financial aid support for post-secondary education
