Background

The competitive preference priorities are focused on meeting student social, emotional, and academic needs, as well as increasing postsecondary education access, affordability, completion, and post-enrollment success. The invitational priorities include supporting activities to strengthen and institutionalize Native language preservation and revitalization, as well as addressing challenges related to the national wildfire emergency on the island of Maui in August 2023.

Eligibility Requirements
Eligible applicants must be accredited or preaccredited by a nationally recognized accrediting agency or association, legally authorized by the State to provide an educational program for which it awards a bachelor’s degree, demonstrate enrollment of needy students, and have low average education and general expenditures per full-time equivalent undergraduate student.

An Alaska Native-serving institution must have an enrollment of undergraduate students that is at least 20 percent Alaska Native students, while a Native Hawaiian-serving institution must have an enrollment of undergraduate students that is at least 10 percent Native Hawaiian students.

Period of Performance

1.a. Eligible Applicants: This program is authorized by title III, part A, of the HEA. At the time of submission of their applications, applicants must certify that an Alaska Native-serving institution has an enrollment of undergraduate students that are at least 20 percent Alaska Native students or that a Native Hawaiian-serving institution has an enrollment of undergraduate students that is at least 10 percent Native Hawaiian students. An assurance form, which is included in the application materials for this competition, must be signed by an official for the applicant and submitted with this application. To qualify as an eligible institution under the ANNH Program, an institution also must-- (i) Be accredited or preaccredited by a nationally recognized accrediting agency or association that the Secretary has determined to be a reliable authority as to the quality of education or training offered; (ii) Be legally authorized by the State in which it is located to be a junior or community college or to provide an educational program for which it awards a bachelor's degree; (iii) Demonstrate that it (1) has an enrollment of needy students as described in 34 CFR 607.3; and (2) has low average education and general expenditures per full-time equivalent (FTE) undergraduate student as described in 34 CFR 607.4. b. Relationship between the Title III, Part A Programs and the Developing Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSI) Program: A grantee under the HSI Program, which is authorized under title V of the HEA, may not receive a grant under any HEA, title III, part A program. 20 U.S.C. 1101d. The title III, part A programs are the Strengthening Institutions Program, the ANNH program, the Tribally Controlled Colleges and Universities Program, the Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander-Serving Institutions Program, the Predominantly Black Institutions Program, and the Native American-Serving Nontribal Institutions Program. Furthermore, a current title III, Part A or title V program grantee may not give up its grant to receive a grant under ANNH, as described in 34 CFR 607.2(g)(1). An eligible IHE that is not a current grantee under the above-cited programs may apply for a FY 2024 grant under all title III, part A programs for which it is eligible, as well as receive consideration for a grant under the HSI program. However, a successful applicant may receive only one grant, as described in 34 CFR 607.2(g)(1). c. Individual Development and Cooperative Arrangement Grants: An eligible IHE that submits applications for an Individual Development Grant and a Cooperative Arrangement Development Grant in this competition may be awarded both in the same fiscal year. However, we will not award a second Cooperative Arrangement Development Grant to an otherwise eligible IHE as the lead institution for an award year for which the IHE already has a Cooperative Arrangement Development Grant as the lead institution under the ANNH Program. A grantee with an Individual Development Grant or a Cooperative Arrangement Development Grant may be a partner in one or more Cooperative Arrangement Development Grants. The lead institution in a Cooperative Arrangement Development Grant must be an eligible institution. Partners are not required to be eligible institutions.
