Today Governor Baker signed the final budget bill for FY2021 with the total amount for Adult Basic Education (line item #7035-0002) set at $46,385,000.

This huge win for ABE represents a 13% increase over FY20, and continues a three-year upward trend for state ABE funding.

Please take a moment this week to thank your state representative and senator for their support of adult basic education. Without their support, this much-needed and much-appreciated increase would not have been possible.
