I'm a freshman attending University of Akron. I just learned that the government is planning to cut the Pell Grant Fund by $1.31 billion and is calling for a freeze on the maximum grant for the next 10 years. This would affect me and many of my good friends who otherwise would not be able to fund their way through college. If such legislation goes into place and my funding is cut, what are some other ways I can fund my way through college?
Additionally, I found a petition urging representatives to strike down these proposed cuts and freezes. Could you take the time to sign this petition with me? It would mean a lot to my friends and I.

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
