The Community Outreach Partnership Centers Program was enacted in the Housing and Community Development Act of 1992 (Pub. L. 102-550, approved October 28, 1992) 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 Community Outreach Partnership Centers Program provides funds for: Research activities which have practical application for solving specific problems in designated communities and neighborhoods; outreach, technical assistance and information exchange activities which are designed to address specific problems associated with housing, economic development, neighborhood revitalization, infrastructure, health care, job training, education, crime prevention, planning, and community organizing. On April 25, 2003 (68 FR 21105/21153), HUD published a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) announcing the availability of $6.955 million ($1.955 million has been set aside to fund COPC Futures Demonstration Program) in Fiscal Year 2003 for the Community Outreach Partnership Centers Program. The Department reviewed, evaluated, and scored the applications received based on the criteria in the NOFA. As a result, HUD has funded 10 applications for New Grants, 6 applications for New Directions Grants and 5 applications for Futures Demonstration Grants. New Grants, which cannot exceed $400,000, are for institutions of higher education just beginning a COPC project. New Directions Grants, which cannot exceed $150,000, are for institutions of higher education that are undertaking new activities or expanding into new neighborhoods. Futures Demonstration Grants, which cannot exceed $400,000, are for schools of architecture, planning and design to focus on housing and planning problems of urban areas. These grants, with their grant amounts are identified below.
