*President Joe Biden’s COVID-19 stimulus package, the American Rescue Plan, has allocated $2.7 billion in funding to historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs). 

The White House released a detailed breakdown of the funding,“showing the funds that were provided by the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) over the past year, according to a press release. As reported by per moguldom.com, the White House touted the “infusion of federal funding” as “among the largest ever in the country’s HBCUs.” 

However, not everyone is pleased with the amount Black educational institutions received compared to other groups.

ADOS Advocacy Foundation President Yvette Carnell shared a post showing how funds in the American Rescue Plan were allocated and it seems Black folks may have received the short end of the deal. 

“Tonight, let’s have a conversation about how everybody is getting bamboozled by the headline “Biden gives $2.7 billion to HBCUs,” she tweeted (see her post above). “Y’all really out here doing the most & getting the least? And bragging about it? Can’t count?
