Title V Programs are funded by the US Department of Education to help eligible institutions of higher education (IHEs) enhance and expand their capacity to serve Hispanic and low-income students by providing funds to improve and strengthen the academic quality, institutional stability, management, and fiscal capabilities of eligible institutions. The development grants are for a 5 year period. ELAC has two such grants, the first, Project for Academic Literacy started in October 2006, with Linda Whitney as the Project Director. The second, Increasing Student and Faculty Engagement with Web 2.0 Technology started in Oct 2007, with Harry Lord as the program Activities Director.
