The deadline is June 25 for Hispanic-Serving Institutions to apply for approximately $7 million in federal Fiscal Year (FY) 2004 grants available through the Hispanic-Serving Institutions Assisting Communities (HSIAC) program of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). HACU encourages HSIs to apply for this important funding to address community development needs. Please forward this Advisory to appropriate staff and program directors.

HSIAC program grant recipients in FY 2003 attracted funding for economic and community development projects ranging from new construction and programs to enhancement of ongoing initiatives providing support for literacy and language, workforce development, youth development, business development and support services and computer technology.
Please note that HACU is seeking substantial increases in future HUD funding for the HSIAC program for FY 2005 and within the pending five-year reauthorization of the Higher Education Act.
HACU urges your attendance and the attendance of your grant and program administrators at HACU’s 18th Annual Conference October 16-19 in Miami, Florida, a crucial national platform to advocate for increased funding for this and other important grant resources for HSIs.
