Increasing College Access and Success: Investing in Human Capital

MAP Capital Investment Bonds

Presentation to Higher Education Finance Commission

September 23, 2010


Students-in-Need Do Not Complete College

Current Illinois Need-Based Grant Program Helps Low-Income Students Attend School

  • Since 1967, Illinois has provided grant assistance for low-income students through the Monetary Award Program (MAP)

  • In FY 2009, 144,230 students received MAP grants totaling $384 million

    • 56,326 MAP grants totaling $57 million went to students attending community colleges, with an average award of $1,008 per student

  • Critical factor in aligning workforce of the future to changing economic opportunities

MAP Funding FY2011

  • FY2011 MAP appropriation is $404 M (plus S/LEAP)

  • Additional MAP funds in FY2011 come primarily from IIA - $4.5 million.

  • MAP not impacted by 2% reserve requirement

  • MAP remains the 4th largest state need-based aid program in the country


Distribution of MAP Dollars


Applications and Number of Eligible Students Continue to Rise while Funding is Level


Good Investments Shouldn’t Lack for Capital

  • MAP successful in helping students afford college

  • Opportunity for state-funded expansion limited; need greatest in challenging economy

  • Evaluate how much MAP recipients pay in state income tax revenue v. other low income taxpayers

  • Findings: College has a good return on investment from individual and state tax perspective

  • Good investments should not lack for capital

  • ISAC Challenge: How to get capital for education

  • ISAC Solution: Use capital markets to invest in people


Individual Return to Education: Lifetime Earnings Are Greater for Those with More Education

State Return to Education: Income Taxes Increase

Maintaining or Even Sustaining Illinois’ Need-Based Program Is At Risk

  • 42,000 students eligible for MAP and who wanted to attend community college did not receive grants due to lack of funds in FY 09; only 28% actually enrolled without the MAP support

  • Each year, more students apply for these limited dollars. So far in 2010, over 70,000 eligible community college students have been denied MAP since funds ran out

  • Unlikely State will have resources in short- and long-term necessitating new, innovative approach

MAP Human Capital Investment BondsA New Paradigm in Funding

  • $550 million in bonds over 5 years

  • 10-year bonds

  • 100,000 low-income community college students per year funded; up to 50,000 additional students per year

  • $1,000 average MAP award

  • More funds, available to more students


MAP Cap Bonds Are a Sound Investment

  • Expands the number of low-income community college students receiving MAP by nearly 50,000

  • Repays bonds with Illinois Income Tax revenue received from these MAP recipients

  • Income Tax revenue exceeds debt service each year, with a minimum debt service coverage ratio of 1.85
