This case study examines the public policy process in New Jersey and how it influenced the distribution of American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funds for higher education. New Jersey originally proposed to appropriate ARRA funds only to state-administered financial-aid programs in the FY2010 budget. Applying Kingdon’s (2003) public policy framework, this study explains how higher education advocates provided feedback, presented a successful alternative, and secured $39.6 million for public college and universities.
