New Website: Foundation Guide from HUD-OUP
The Office of University Partnerships, founded by the Department of Housing and Urban Development in 1994, is designed “to encourage and expand the efforts of higher education that are striving to make a difference in their communities through funding opportunities.” Their online presence includes a number of helpful documents for persons interested in these relationships, including a recently updated guide to foundations likely to fund research related to topics dealing with colleges and communities. Also helpful is a database of research and publications conducted by OUP and its grantees, along with archived OUP newsletters. Rounding out the site is a section devoted to upcoming events sponsored by the OUP and participating institutions, in addition to documents for persons interested in applying for funding. [KMG]
