For every $1 the state awards to private, not-for-profit colleges and universities through the HECap program, colleges must invest $3 of their own funds.

Since the program’s inception in 2005, the state has awarded $246.8 million in grants which private colleges and universities have matched with more than $800 million.

HECap is the only source of capital funding grants specifically designed for the needs of private higher education.
