SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Historically Black Colleges and Universities Program was approved by the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2010 (Pub. L. 111-117, approved December 16, 2009) and is administered by the Office of University Partnerships under the Office of 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, property demolition or acquisition, public facilities, economic development, business entrepreneurship, a wide range of public service activities, and fair housing programs.

The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance number for this program is 14.520.

On December 28, 2010, a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) was posted on Grants.gov announcing a second round of funding under this program for approximately $2.3 million to fund HBCU grants. Under this program, HUD awarded two kinds of grants: Previously Unfunded HBCU Grants and Previously Funded HBCU Grants. Previously Unfunded HBCU Grants were awarded to applicants who have never received an HBCU grant or have not received a grant since FY 2000. The maximum amount a Previously Unfunded HBCU applicant could request for award is $500,000 for a three-year (36 months) grant performance period. Previously Funded HBCU Grants were awarded to applicants that had received funding between FY 2001 through FY 2009. The maximum amount a Previously Funded HBCU applicant could request for award is $800,000 for three-year (36 months) grant performance period.

The Department reviewed, evaluated, and scored the applications received based on the criteria in the NOFA. As a result, HUD has funded the applications below, in accordance with section 102(a)(4)(C) of the Department of Housing and Urban Development Reform Act of 1989 (103 Stat. 1987, 42 U.S.C. 3545).
