The Child Education Grant program provides grants to low-income families to help them pay for college and college-level education.
The grant can help pay for tuition and fees at public universities and colleges.
The program has also been linked to a number of other grants for low- and moderate-income students.
The programs were created in 1994 as part of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965.
This was a time when many states were still struggling to create public schools and a large number of low- income families were being left out of public education.
The program is the largest federal program for low income families.
The total cost for grants to states has more than doubled in the past decade.
For the 2015 fiscal year, states spent $2.6 billion to pay for the program.
According to the National Center for Education Statistics, about 60 percent of the $7.6 trillion federal grant is spent on child education.
The Department of Education said the grants are intended to support low- to moderate-wage students and provide additional support for families on fixed incomes.
The Education Department’s Child Education Program is not the only federal program that is changing the role of students in public education, according to a report from the Center for American Progress.
The report, which examined funding trends across 50 states from 2005 to 2015, said that the federal grant for public schools has increased from $20 billion in 1995 to $55 billion in 2015.
The grants also have a disproportionate impact on low-wage families.
The report said that nearly half of public school students attend school on a fixed income.
About 22 percent of students attending public school in the U.S. live in families with incomes below $40,000 per year.
The study found that a number to 60 percent are attending public schools on a family income of less than $40.
In states with high poverty, the study said that students attending on fixed income have a higher likelihood of attending a public school than students who attend on fixed pay.
