HACU encourages applications from all eligible HSIs who are not current grantees or past grantees still in the two year wait out period. Current Individual Development Grantees are eligible to apply for Cooperative Arrangement Development Grants. If your institution is not a current Title V recipient, don’t miss this best opportunity for federal support for HSIs.
