Title V Grants Awarded to 30 HSIs -- September 26, 2007

The U.S. Department of Education announced today new Title V grant awards for FY 2007 to 30 Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs) in <st1:state w:st="on">Arizona, <st1:state w:st="on">California, <st1:state w:st="on">Florida, <st1:state w:st="on">Illinois, <st1:state w:st="on">Kansas, <st1:state w:st="on">New Jersey, <st1:state w:st="on">New Mexico, <st1:state w:st="on">New York, <st1:city w:st="on">Puerto Rico, <st1:state w:st="on">Texas and <st1:state w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">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. These new Title V grants total approximately $17.2 million in FY 2007.  Continuing grants to current recipients account for the rest of the $94.9 million appropriated in FY 2007 for Title V.

HACU is proud to have been able to persuade the U.S. Congress to appropriate more than $95 million for fiscal year 2007 to continue multi-year grants for Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs) and to fund 25 new individual development grants at as many HSIs and five new cooperative development grants for a total of $17.2 million from such appropriation. These funds will support HSIs in their effort to reach out, recruit, support, and graduate as many Hispanics and other needy students in their respective service areas and campuses.

For FY 2008, HACU is again 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 2008 in the education appropriation bill that will come up for vote within the next few weeks.

As HSIs continue to receive only about one-half the funds per student annually from all federal sources, compared to all other institutions, we are hopeful that Congress will surpass the $100 million mark for Title V appropriations in fiscal 2008. We encourage you to inform your U.S. Representative and U.S. Senator of the need to increase Title V funding to $100 million for FY 2008.

Information on the focus, scope and application process for Title V grants and other federal programs for FY 2008 will be featured in two workshops at HACU's 21st Annual Conference October 20-22, 2007 in <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:city w:st="on">Chicago, <st1:state w:st="on">Illinois. We have invited 10 federal agencies with programs designated for Minority Serving Institutions to serve on a panel on federal grant and partnership opportunities available to HSIs. 

If you have not yet registered for the Conference, please consider joining us in sharing information about your Title V initiative with other HSI program representatives. Visit for more information and online registration forms.

Make plans also to attend HACU's 2008 Capitol Forum April 13-15, 2008, in <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:city w:st="on">Washington, <st1:state w:st="on">D.C., when the leadership of HACU-member colleges and universities will present a unified voice to Congress urging funding increases for FY 2009 across federal agency program lines.
