The Illinois MAP grant program provides college funds, based on financial need, according to information provided in the FAFSA form. Those grants do not have to be repaid.
"In the past, we've lost students that filed late, or they didn't know about filing, or weren't aware of the FAFSA," said Mark Llewellyn, Quincy Senior High Director of Guidance.
Llewellyn, along with the Illinois Student Assistance Commission held an emergency FAFSA workshop Friday after an announcement made on Thursday that budget problems had prompted the state of Illinois to stop accepting application for MAP grants.
