To mark the anniversary of the American Rescue Plan, the Department of Education has released a state-by-state analysis of the $2.7 Billion investment in historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs). According to the statement, the funds were provided through the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund over the past year. This infusion of federal funding complements other American Rescue Plan funds for critical institutions of higher education that serve communities of color.

The American Rescue Plan requires half of these funds to be used to provide direct financial relief to students; the Department of Education said it expects far more will ultimately be used for that purpose. In addition to funding provided under coronavirus relief legislation, these funds are being used by colleges and universities across the country to serve students and ensure learning continues.

Thousands of colleges and universities all across the country are using HEERF to keep students enrolled and on track to graduate, as well as make college more affordable, by providing emergency grants, discharging outstanding student debt or unpaid balances, and eliminating transcript withholding practices.
