The "TAP Gap" is a flaw in the way New York funds financial aid that penalizes CUNY colleges for accepting low-income students. This year it will cost CUNY $82 million in lost funding.


Anyone can see it with their eyes how poorly CUNY is funded and it is a shame.

- Andrea Disalvio of Brokelyn College Campaign
