From the Purpose and Summary: "H.R. 1494, the 'Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) Homeland Security Partnerships Act' would require the Department of Homeland Security (the Department or DHS) to issue a strategy with yearly goals for enhancing its partnerships with HBCUs and minority-serving institutions (MSIs). The bill also requires DHS to monitor and report on the implementation of the strategy to ensure the Department's progress in providing contracting, research and development, and internship and career opportunities to HBCUs and MSIs and their students or recent graduates. Additionally, H.R. 1494 requires the Administrator of the Small Business Administration to publish eligibility criteria on how HBCUs and MSIs may qualify to participate in Federal acquisitions under the 8(a) small business program. The 'HBCUs Homeland Security Partnerships Act' has bipartisan support as it was introduced by Chairman Bennie G. Thompson (D-MS-02) and Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer (R-MO-03)."
