Healing for Nurses’ Economic Hurt

It’s been well publicized in recent years that there has been a shortage of nurses in the United States. The number of students entering the nursing field has increased as a result. The pay and the job prospects are good, and those are big incentives in a time when jobs for new graduates are scarce and wages in general are stagnant. Add in the factor of many students carrying a large education debt load, and it’s easy to see the attraction of entering an in-demand profession.

Hidden Grants

Did you know that many local governments have grants that are not publicized? Some communities have funding set aside, but they don’t publicize it. Often, the only way to find out about available funding is to call or visit your government offices, find the resident grant expert, and inquire about available programs.

How Community Development Block Grants Can Improve Your Neighborhood

Do you know what happens to areas where there’s an economic decline? One bleak scenario is that without money, it starts to become dilapidated and possibly crime-ridden, so that just accelerates the pace of businesses and residents leaving the area. Revenues decline further because of the shrinking tax base, and the downward spiral continues. One way to prevent this is with an infusion of outside funding. One way a town or neighborhood can get a boost is with money from the federal government. One of the longest-running and most successful federal grant programs is the Community Development Block Grant. Here’s how it works. A sum of money in the form of a federal grant is provided

Michigan Students to Attend College for ‘Free’ Education fund

StudentLoanPhotoThe latest, greatest idea for making a college education affordable sounds simple enough — students can attend school for free.

But there’s a catch.

In return for free tuition, students have to agree to pay a fixed percentage of their future income for a specified number of years to a special fund that would pay other students’ college bills.

A version of the pay-it-forward tuition plan was introduced recently in the Michigan Legislature and is awaiting action. More than 20 states are looking at some version of the plan, although most are simply looking at studying it, while the Michigan bill would set up a pilot program.
