Fiscal Year 1999/2000 Annual Performance Report.
White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanic Americans, Washington, DC.
This annual performance report examines how federal agencies address the education and employment challenges facing the Latino community. The report profiles the programmatic efforts undertaken by federal agencies in fiscal year 1999 and plans for fiscal year 2000. Agency profiles were slightly modified over fiscal year 1998 to better highlight achievements and investments to improve education and employment opportunities for Hispanic Americans. Profiles include information on such areas as: action plan achievements; programs and activities that have demonstrated a direct impact on Hispanic communities; contributions to Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs) (e.g., total agency funding and activities that demonstrate the agency's support for enhancing the capacity of HSIs); employment of Hispanics (total number of Hispanics employed in the agency, strategies to address the underrepresentation of Hispanics in the agency's employment ranks, and other employment practices that offer Hispanics an opportunity to develop their academic and professional careers); future investments; and point of contact (names of agency officials who can respond to questions about the programs identified in the report). Appended are: the Department of Education FY99/00 Annual Performance Report; federal agency support for HSIs; and FY99 federal agency financial support for HSIs. (SM)
