AAU, Associations Urge House Leaders to Pass FUTURE Act

AAU, along with ACE, APLU, and 40 other higher education organizations, sent a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) urging they pass H.R. 2486 , the “Fostering Undergraduate Talent by Unlocking Resources for Education Act.” This bipartisan measure, which was passed by the House, extends vital funding for STEM education, student completion, and other infrastructure programs that benefit Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Tribal Colleges and Universities, Hispanic-Serving Institutions, and other Minority-Serving Institutions. Initially set to expire September 30, 2019, the legislation reauthorizes $255 million of mandatory funding each year for programs under Title III of the Higher Education Act. The measure awaits Senate consideration.
