This paper describes the main public benefit and refundable tax credit programs low-income college students are most likely to be eligible for and their interactions with federal- and state-funded financial aid, including Pell Grants and work-study. 

This brief explains the tax provisions that would be affected by recent proposals, compares them all, and examines how different types of students would be affected under each proposal.
