CCC&Y supports Prop. 308. Please see Fact Sheet for more information

| September 20, 2022

Arizona Proposition 308, the In-State Tuition for Non-Citizen Residents Measure, is on the ballot in Arizona as a legislatively referred state statute on November 8, 2022.

A “yes” vote supports allowing non-citizen students to receive in-state college tuition when a student (a) attended school in Arizona for at least two years and (b) graduated from a public school, private school, or homeschool in Arizona.

A “no” vote opposes allowing non-citizen students to receive in-state college tuition, thus continuing to require out-of-state tuition rates for non-citizen students who attended for at least two years and graduated from schools in Arizona.

United Way of Northern Arizona — Strategic Plan for Northeast AZ Underway

| September 20, 2022

United Way of Northern Arizona is in the process of developing a plan to bolster our work in northeastern Arizona and support our nonprofit partners in Navajo and Apache counties.
The strategic plan being developed is similar to a process we went through several years ago in the greater Flagstaff region, which allowed us to refocus our efforts on the most critical needs in Coconino County.

A special Task Force has been assembled for this project and is being led by Eric Scott, Human Resource and Risk Manager for Navajo County and a member of the UWNA Board.

The creation of this plan comes at a time when this economically challenged area (poverty rates range from 23% to 32%) is going through an important transition. Utilities in the area are moving from coal-based energy to renewables and natural gas, resulting in the closure of three power plants in the region
