Northwest Iowa Community College recently received a $1.2 million grant for TRIO Student Support Services, allowing the college to extend its services through 2020. TRIO refers to federal programs providing support services and outreach to disadvantaged students. This includes students from low-income households, with disabilities, and first-generation college students. Such student groups often include developmental students. Since 2001, the college’s TRIO program has helped more than 2,200 students.
