Going to community college may soon be much more affordable for Maryland residents.

Gov. Larry Hogan plans to sign a bill this week that covers tuition costs at community colleges for qualifying residents.

The legislation was approved near the end of this year's legislative session.

It will create a $15 million program to provide scholarships of up to $5,000 to students from families earning less than $125,000 a year. Single adults earning less than $90,000 also would be eligible for the money.
