The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has allocated $5 million in funding for historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) to conduct housing and community research development. 

The aim is to support Research Centers of Excellence at HBCUs, which will focus on strategic areas of interest to HUD. These centers will produce evidence-based solutions to address challenges in underserved communities, including housing, community development, economic development, and the environment. 

The funding will enable HBCUs to expand their capacity for innovative research and to contribute to policy-making and positive change in these critical areas.

The initiative reflects HUD’s commitment to affordable housing and its emphasis on collaborating with institutions that prioritize Black and brown communities.

More information on how to apply for funding can be found on HUD.gov.
