Education Department Awards Grants to Three HBCUs

Funding will help colleges address safety concerns.

The Department of Education announced the awarding of grants to three additional Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). These universities experienced multiple bomb threats in the last year and will be receiving  Project School Emergency Response to Violence (Project SERV) grants to help them fund better security for their campuses. North Carolina Central University was awarded $213,500; Philander Smith College was awarded $149,963; and Hampton University was awarded $214,317.

“As Secretary of Education, I categorically reject any and all efforts to terrorize Black students and educators and I am committed to ensuring access to Project SERV grants and all available federal resources to help HBCUs restore safe, welcoming, and nurturing learning environments,” said Secretary Miguel Cardona. “I’m pleased that these three grants will advance efforts by HBCU leaders to strengthen mental health supports, help students overcome these traumatic experiences, and invest in their campus security.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Cardona as he oversees awarding of funds for HBCU campus security.
  • For Education Department officials as they collaborate on protections for universities experiencing threats.
