Corrine Brown introduces bill to boost HBCU funding

Representative Corrine Brown, an alumnus of Florida A & M, has a clear understanding of the importance of historically black colleges and universities, and to that end, her Land Grant Opportunity Act, introduced on Monday, is intended to redress funding inequities. 

Her press office asserted on Wednesday that “the “Land Grant Opportunity Act … amends the National Agriculture and Teaching Policy Act of 1977 (NARETPA) to address inequities in state funding for historically black, land-grant colleges and universities, [requiring] states to provide a full, one-to-one match for 1862 and 1890 land grants. It also requires the Department of Agriculture (USDA) to disburse federal funds in a manner that is equitable in the event that a state fails to comply with the match requirement.”
