Funding for HBCUs Acquired

The federal government has set aside $7 million in 1999 to promote historic preservation at historically Black colleges and universities.
The funds, part of an Interior Department spending bill, will be divided among institutions with buildings that qualify for aid. A report that accompanies the bill outlines a specific process for the government to award funds.
As a first step in the program, Interior plans to spend $200,000 to conduct an assessment of all buildings eligible for assistance. Following the assessment, the agency then will award funds based on the most pressing needs identified through that review. However, no single HBCU will receive more than $1 million this year, the report says.
