Program budget authority (BA)

Request

BA in millions ...............................................

$0.6

$0.6

$67.6

Note: The amount shown for FY 2013 excludes the 0.612 percent across-the-board increase provided in P.L. 112-175, the 0.2 percent across-the-
board decrease required by P.L. 113-6, and the sequester reduction of 5 percent required by the Budget Control Act of 2011.

The request would support the collection and analysis of performance data and the evaluation
of Higher Education Act programs that either lack funding set-asides to conduct these activities
or where such set-asides are not sufficient to cover the costs of the activities. The request
includes $32 million to support a demonstration and evaluation of dual enrollment programs, to
be co-funded with $10 million from Career and Technical Education National Programs. Funds
would be used to establish or expand dual enrollment programs aligned with career pathways
and local workforce needs that offer high school and adult students the opportunity to earn
college credits while enrolled in a high school or GED program. In addition, funds would
support an on-going evaluation of the Pell grant expansions under the Experimental Sites

Study, and a number of other studies of strategies for providing student aid in ways that improve
postsecondary access and outcomes.

Note: The amounts shown for FY 2013 exclude the 0.612 percent across-the-board increase provided in P.L. 112-175, the 0.2 percent across-the-
board decrease required by P.L. 113-6, and the sequester reduction of 5 percent required by the Budget Control Act of 2011.

These programs support the construction, reconstruction, and renovation of academic facilities
at institutions of higher education. The request for the HBCU Capital Financing Program would
support the management and servicing of loan guarantees on previously issued loans, and
includes $20.2 million in loan subsidy that would allow the program to guarantee $320.4 million
in new loans in 2014. Funds also would be used to continue technical assistance services to
help HBCUs increase their fiscal stability and improve their access to capital markets. The
Administration is seeking legislative authority to raise the limits on total loan authority and the
sub-limits on authority for loans to public and private HBCUs.

Funding for CHAFL Federal Administration is used solely to manage and service existing
portfolios of facilities loans and grants made in prior years.

The 2014 request would maintain support for Howard University’s academic programs, research
programs, construction activities, and the Howard University Hospital at the 2012 level. Howard
University has played a historic role in providing access to postsecondary educational
opportunities for students from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds, especially African-
Americans. The request includes $3.6 million for Howard University’s endowment. The direct
Federal appropriation accounts for approximately 39 percent of Howard University’s operating
costs.
