New Deal For A New PA

A New Deal for a New Pennsylvania means devoting resources and energy to policy that uplifts the people. Find out what state Senator Vincent Hughes wants to bring to Pennsylvania so it’s people can prosper.

#NewDeal4NewPA

Pennsylvania needs a change. We need comprehensive policy solutions that address the issues our people face.

Pennsylvanians need economic security so they can work with dignity, pay their bills, and take care of their families and plan for a better life.

Pennsylvanians need quality, affordable housing to go home to after a long day’s work. They also deserve world class health care without ridiculously high premiums, hidden costs or inadequate coverage.

Pennsylvania's children deserve a high-quality education, which should start with our preschoolers and continue through college. Pennsylvania should provide the best educational opportunities for its people.

Pennsylvanians need voting reform so that young adults are automatically registered to vote when using state services. Voting should be accessible and inclusive.

Pennsylvanians need healthy environment with clean air, water and land. We must also move forward with the understanding that renewable energy and green jobs are our future.

In short, we need a New Deal for a New Pennsylvania!

PA Promise Logo

One of the most troubling challenges facing many students and families across Pennsylvania is the high cost of education.  This is often such a high hurdle that many students simply forgo a college education and are prevented from acquiring the skills necessary to gain better positions with higher wages.

collegeThe education gap caused by a lack of access to college or advanced education is, for many low-and-middle income students, the one faction preventing them from gaining traction in the workplace.   In our increasingly complex and high-tech economy, it is essential that we make, then fulfill, the promise to Pennsylvania students:  YOU will have access to a high-quality education without the burdens of crippling debt.

That’s what the Pennsylvania Promise is all about.   The Pennsylvania Promise is available to students with family incomes of $110,000 or less.  It provides for grants of at least $1,000 per year for community college students for two years and a minimum of $2,500 per year for four years to Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education Schools and state related institutions.

The program also provides $50 million for adults in families whose incomes are less than $110,000 to acquire up to four years of postsecondary credit.
