TVCC Receives $2.3 Million HEP Grant

A $2,375,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Education will allow Treasure Valley Community College to continue its High School Equivalency Program (HEP).

This grant provides $475,000 over five years, beginning in the 2021-22 academic year, and is a renewal grant for TVCC. 

“We are thrilled to have this grant renewed. HEP has been an important program for students in our community and has assisted so many students build confidence and a new relationship with education,” said TVCC president Dr. Dana Young.  “The continuation of this federal grant will help us provide additional support and enable TVCC to expand services to more students in our community.”

The application process for the HEP grant renewal took several months of hard work by many members of the college community including TVCC Vice President Edward Alves, Dean of CTE David Koehler, Chief Development Officer Cathy Yasuda and the entire HEP staff who dedicated their time and effort to achieve this outcome.

“We are grateful to continue serving our migrant community who resiliently adapted despite the challenges of this year, and we have faith and confidence that the best is yet to come,” TVCC HEP Director Hector Aguirre added. 

HEP has been in existence since 1967 and is an educational program which serves migrant or seasonal agricultural working families.
