Education Department Announces FY 2007 Title V Competition
After much delay, the U.S. Department of Education today announced the opening of the competition for the FY 2007 round of Title V grants for the “Developing Hispanic-Serving Institutions Program.”
The deadline for submission of completed applications is August 10, 2007.
The appropriation for FY 2007 is $94.914 million and all of the funds, for existing and new grantees, will be obligated by September 30, 2007. Please note that HACU was successful in removing two major obstacles from this year’s application process: the 2-year wait-out period and the 50% low-income assurance requirement.
More details and the official announcement in the Federal Register can be found at: http://a257.g.akamaitech.net/7/257/2422/01jan20071800/edocket.access.gpo.gov/2007/E7-13473.htm.
HACU encourages applications from all eligible HSIs. If your institution is not a current Title V recipient, don’t miss this best opportunity for federal support of HSIs. Also, eligible HSIs may invite non-HSIs to collaborate in the planning and implementation of a Title V collaborative grant.
Purpose of the Title V Program: The Developing HSI Program assists HSIs to expand educational opportunities for, and improve the academic attainment of, Hispanic students. The Developing HSI Program also enables HSIs to expand and enhance their academic offerings, program quality, and institutional stability.
