This report describes amounts and sources of education funding for land-grant schools, especially programs funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and major funding sources for historically black or tribal land-grant schools. The report identifies and describes a total of 24 programs, with budget requests of $1.245.1 billion in fiscal year 1996. Included are 17 U.S. Department of Agriculture programs that encompassed research and education and extension activities for: (1) schools that acquired land-grant status through the 1862 Morrill Act; (2) historically black colleges and universities that acquired land-grant status through the 1890 Morrill Act; and (3) tribal colleges that acquired land-grant status through the Equity in Educational Land-Grant Status Act of 1994. The one Department of the Interior program described derives from the Tribally Controlled Community College Assistance Act. The four Department of Education programs described were targeted to historically black colleges and universities; two additional programs described were primary programs used by tribal colleges during the school year 1992.
