On Friday, May 21 at 1:00 p.m. ET, CLPHA's Housing Is Initiative will participate in a tweet chat hosted by Georgetown Center on Poverty and Inequality’s Economic Security and Opportunity Initiative.

The #CostsBeyondTuition tweet chat will highlight GCPI ESOI's recent report Obstacles to Opportunity: Increasing College Success by Understanding & Addressing Older Students’ Costs Beyond Tuition, which offers new estimates of older students’ spending and provides policy recommendations to address costs beyond tuition and improve college access and success for older students.

Housing Is will offer our perspective in the chat on costs beyond tuition and what colleges and policymakers can do to address these costs and better serve older low-income based on our learnings from our leadership institute of a cohort of public housing authority staff and their partners who demonstrate the experience and capacity for postsecondary collaboration.

To follow along, visit Housing Is's Twitter account on Friday at 1:00 p.m. ET, or  search the hashtag #CostsBeyondTuition on Twitter.
