In accordance with statutory requirements, the research proposals must be submitted by eligible applicants
and provide cost sharing for at least 50 percent of total project cost from philanthropic entities or Federal, state or local government agencies.
This notice announces that HUD is accepting research proposals and provides a general description of information that should be included in any research proposal.
The Department is interested in increasing participation of Minority Serving Institutions of higher education and Historically Black Colleges and Universities in all program areas.
