Grants for Certain Purposes to 1890 Land-Grant Colleges. Hearing before the Subcommittee on Department Investigations, Oversight, and Research of the Committee on Agriculture, House of Representatives, Ninety Sixth Congress, Second Session, on H.R. 7557 and H.R. 7757.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Agriculture.
Congressional hearings concerning H.R. 7557 and H.R. 7757, which pertain to grants to 1890 land-grant colleges, are presented. H.R. 7557 provides for grants to the states for the purposes of assisting eligible colleges, including Tuskegee Institute, to receive funds under the act of August 30, 1890, in the purchase of equipment and land and the planning, construction, alteration, or renovation of buildings to strengthen their capacity for food and agriculture research. H.R. 7557 would make grants based on facility needs data supplied by the affected institutions several years ago, while H.R. 7757 would follow traditional formula funding procedures already set forth for research and extension grants for the 1890 institutions and Tuskegee in Title XIV of the 1977 farm bill. The enactment of H.R. 7557 is recommended in the fiscal year 1981 budget. It is hoped that the bills will not only provide modern facilities for federally-supported research but will stimulate the infusion of state funds into the agricultural research activities of these predominantly minority institutions to permit their full participation in well coordinated agricultural research in their states and regions. The text of each bill is included. (SW)
