A new report by the Century Foundation examines how state and federal policy makers should provide more funding and resources to community colleges.

The report, written by Richard Kahlenberg and Robert Shireman, senior fellows at the foundation, recommends that states use research to connect funding to specific educational goals, connect increased funding with smart accountability schemes and couple free college initiatives to commitments that ensure community colleges provide high-quality opportunities.

The authors of the report also recommend that the federal government form new partnerships with states to provide matching grants.
