Delay in Federal Funding is Affecting HBCUs

Inside Higher Education reports that Congress's delay in providing hundreds of millions of dollars in funding for Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) is already having negative affects on some colleges. From Inside Higher Education: "The Senate's failure to renew $255 million in annual mandatory funding for historically black colleges is already having consequences on campuses, wrote Harry L. Williams, president and CEO of the Thurgood Marshall College Fund... The group, which represents public historically black colleges, had called on the Senate to pass the FUTURE Act, which would have provided a short-term extension of Title III, Part F, funds that pay for STEM education at HBCUs."

The full letter from the Thurgood Marshall College Fund can be read here.
