Going to the Source: A Practical Way to Simplify the FAFSA

Mar 21, 2007

The report Going to the Source: A Practical Way to Simplify the FAFSA outlines a plan for simplifying the financial aid application process by letting financial aid applicants ask the IRS to automatically answer many of the most difficult and important questions on the FAFSA.
