HACU Member Advisory--October 4, 2004
Title V grants awarded to 31 HSIs
New FY 2004 Title V grants have been awarded to 31 Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs) in California, Illinois, New Mexico, New York, Texas and Washington. HACU applauds the leadership of its member colleges and universities that were awarded these important new federal infrastructure grants to promote Hispanic higher education success.
The U.S. Department of Education awarded the competitive FY 2004 Title V grants to these HSIs:
These new grants, along with continuing grants won by HSIs, total approximately $94 million in FY 2004 Title V grants.
For FY2005, HACU is seeking record new funding under Title V, which remains the chief vehicle for targeting federal grants to HSIs. Please join HACU in urging a higher funding level for HSIs under Title V for FY 2005 in education bills that will be voted on by Congress following the November election.
Best practices and model Title V programs will be a focus of workshops at HACU’s 18th Annual Conference October 16-19, 2004, in Miami, Florida. If you have not yet registered, please register today online at www.hacu.net.
Make plans also to attend HACU’s 2005 Capitol Forum April 2-5, 2005, in Washington, D.C., when the leadership of HACU member colleges and universities will present a unified voice to Congress urging record new Title V funding increases for FY 2006 and through the pending five-year reauthorization of the Higher Education Act.
