Grants to USA higher education institutions to build capacity and become self-sufficient in serving low-income students. Technical assistance webinars are scheduled for March 23 and March 30. The purpose of this program is to strengthen and improve the academic quality, fiscal stability, and institutional management.

Funds may be used for planning, faculty development, and establishing endowment funds. Administrative management, and the development and improvement of academic programs also are supported. Other projects include joint use of instructional facilities, construction and maintenance, and student service programs designed to improve academic success, including innovative, customized, instruction courses designed to help retain students and move the students rapidly into core courses and through program completion, which may include remedial education and English language instruction.

The Department is conducting two separate competitions for Strengthening Institution Program (SIP) grants in fiscal year 2017. In the competition under CFDA number 84.031F, applicants must address an absolute priority. The separate competition under CFDA number 84.031A does not include any priorities. The competitions are announced in separate Federal Register notices. Applicants may apply for grants in both the 84.031A and 84.031F competitions but can only receive one grant.
