“There are a few different pots. The research extension and teaching capacity pot needs to go into some priority areas. Maybe you’re looking at food security, they may be looking at childhood obesity prevention, they may be looking into food safety issues or climate change or bio-energy issues, so they help the students learn about those issues and provide resources. On the building facilities side, it really is about food science facilities. They may have a lab, they may have a science center that’s dedicated to food science. This [money] helps to equip the facility or build the facility. It can also go into libraries.”

Vilsack says the federal government is committed to providing funds for education and that the HBCU’s are an important part of that package.

“Since 2009, we’ve invested $647 million in those facilities and it’s a great investment.”
