SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Historically Black Colleges and Universities Program was enacted under section 107 of the CDBG appropriation for fiscal year 2001, as part of the “Veterans Administration, HUD and Independent Agencies Appropriations Act of 2001” 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.

The HBCU Program provides funds for a wide range of CDBG-eligible activities including housing rehabilitation and financing, property demolition or acquisition, public facilities, economic development, business entrepreneurship, and fair housing programs. On February 26, 2001 (66 FR 11747), HUD published a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) announcing the availability of $10 million in Fiscal Year 2001 funds for the HBCU Program. The Department reviewed, evaluated and scored the applications received based on the Start Printed Page 57981criteria in the NOFA. As a result, HUD 22 applications were funded.
