After White House courts HBCUs, budget disappoints school leaders - Danielle Douglas-Gabriel, Washington Post

After meetings with the Trump administration last month, leaders of historically black colleges and universities expressed cautious optimism that the increased funding they requested might actually make it into the White House budget. It did not. Instead, Trump’s first presidential budget released Thursday calls for “maintaining” $492 million in appropriations for HBCUs and minority-serving institutions. Combined discretionary spending for those schools, however, is actually $577 million right now. The White House directed questions about the discrepancy to the Education Department, which did not respond to requests for comment. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/grade-point/wp/2017/03/16/white-house-courting-of-hbcus-ends-with-disappointing-budget/?utm_term=.b166f982251c
