Increasing FAFSA Completion in Florida: A Playbook for Success


Helios Education Foundation (Helios) is dedicated to creating opportunities for individuals in Arizona and Florida to achieve a postsecondary education. Fundamental beliefs in Community, Equity, Investment, and Partnership drive our work, and we invest in initiatives across the full education continuum. Ultimately, the goal is to ensure that every student graduates from high school ready for college and career and goes on to complete a high-quality postsecondary degree or certificate.

With the success of the Arizona FAFSA Playbook, Helios began to have conversations with stakeholders and community leaders in Florida. After being encouraged to create a playbook for Florida, Helios then partnered with the Florida College Access Network (FCAN) to develop a Florida-specific playbook. This document and supporting tools are the culmination of that work. We hope that the playbook will increase FAFSA completion rates across Florida and help communities, regions, neighborhoods, districts, and schools increase postsecondary access.
