Congressional Black Caucus on Alert Concerning Cuts to HBCU Federal Grants

Congresswoman Terri A. Sewell (D-AL), Congresswoman Gwen Moore (D-WI) and 41 members of the Congressional Black Caucus on Friday urged U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos to provide clarity on cuts to an Upward Bound program designed to help low-income students attend Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).

“We’re calling on Secretary DeVos to work with members of Congress to identify and address the issues that have led to such a devastating loss on our HBCU campuses,” Sewell said.
