Acknowledgment:
We are grateful for the assistance of several individuals in the production of data in this database: Sabrina Aponte, Stephanie Carroll, Aaron Soo Ping Chow, Glen Casey, Devon Hernandez, Jillian Johnston, Jessica Lim, Julia Manokhina, Destiny McLennan, Ashley Napier, Roman Ruiz, Dorothy Villarreal, and Jeremy Wright. We also appreciate feedback and verification of information from Denisa Gándara, Amy Li, and colleagues at WestEd.

Inclusion Criteria
Programs in the database have a goal of higher education attainment, have place-based eligibility criteria, and provide benefits to students. The seven categories of programs (derived from Perna & Leigh’s (2018) typology) include only programs that provide a financial award to students. The online database also includes programs that offer non-financial “promises,” such as guaranteed transfer, college savings accounts, and dual enrollment programs, but is not intended to include the complete population of these programs. We also do not include programs that are inactive or in development.
