Bush Administration Awards $3 Million to Native Hawaiian and Alaska Native Colleges and Universities

U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Steve Preston today awarded $3 million to four Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian colleges and universities to help revitalize neighborhoods, promote affordable housing and stimulate economic development in their communities.

The funding is provided through HUD’s Alaska Native/Native Hawaiian Institutions Assisting Communities ( AN/NHIAC ) Program. For an institution to qualify as an Alaska Native Institution, at least 20 percent of the undergraduate student enrollment must be Alaska Native. To qualify as a Native Hawaiian Institution, at least 10 percent of the school’s undergraduate enrollment must be Native Hawaiians.

“These colleges and universities play a vital role in their communities and I’m pleased HUD can help support them as they work to revitalize the communities,” said Preston. “By teaming up with these institutions of higher learning, HUD can improve neighborhoods, offer needed public services, and stimulate community development.”

The following Hawaiian colleges and universities were awarded funding:

University of Hawaii-Kauai Community College

University of Hawaii at Manoa

University of Hawaii-Hawaii Community College

The Alaska Native/Native Hawaiian Institutions Assisting Communities Program is one of several initiatives administered by HUD’s Office of University Partnerships ( OUP ). Established in 1994, OUP is a catalyst for partnering colleges and universities with their communities in a shared search for answers to pressing urban problems. More information about OUP and its programs is available on the Internet at www.oup.org.
