The Hispanic-serving Institutions Assisting Communities Program (HSIAC) was enacted under section 107 of the CDBG appropriation for fiscal year 2000, as part of the “Veterans Administration, HUD and Independent Agencies Appropriations Act of 2000” and is administered by the Office of University Partnerships under the Assistant Secretary for Policy Development and Research. In addition to this program, the Office of University Partnerships administers HUD's ongoing grant programs to institutions of higher education as well as creates initiatives through which colleges and universities can bring their traditional missions of teaching, research, service, and outreach to bear on the pressing local problems in their communities.
