Black Hawk College balances budget amid state funding crisis - KWQC

"The state support is vital and critical to Black Hawk College," said Steven J. Frommelt, Vice President for Finance and Administration and Board Treasurer. "Even though the state doesn't have a balanced and passed budget, it is still important to us." The college can still support itself without a state budget, but the amount the state is giving is half of what it was three years ago. "You've seen a budget presented tonight that has very minimal funding coming from the state of Illinois," said Dr. Bettie Truitt, President of the college. "We're down to about 11%, counting on about $3.6 million from the state." That 11% Truitt refers to is the amount of funding the college uses that is state funding. It should serve as 33% of funding of the college, but due to lack of a state budget, it is just 11%. Tuition makes up 51% of Black Hawk's funds.
