Long Version: OUP.org is the official Web portal for the Office of University Partnerships, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's effort to encourage and expand the growing number of partnerships formed between colleges and universities and their communities. OUP recognizes the crucial role these collaborations and partnerships play in addressing local problems and revitalizing our nation's communities. OUP strives to support and increase these collaborative efforts through grants, interactive conferences, and research. OUP funds and/or manages eight different grant programs, including programs that support minority-serving institutions such as our Alaska Native/Native Hawaiian Institutions Assisting Communties, Hispanic-Serving Institutions Assisting Communities, Historically Black Colleges and Universities, and Tribal Colleges and Universities programs. We also offer grant opportunities to doctoral students studying to become part of the housing and urban development research field.
