Low- to moderate-income families with young adults could receive assistance with the FAFSA form at tax preparation offices. A representative could automatically pre-populate the FAFSA and then conduct a short interview to complete the form, tell families how much aid they could qualify for, provide tuition information for local colleges, and offer to submit the form to the Department of Education. This program has been shown to increase college attendance.
