San Antonio College receives $1 million grant to fund Empowerment Center expansion

SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio College (SAC) plans to use funding from U.S. Rep Greg Casar to expand a facility geared toward low-income, at-risk students.

The college will use the funding to expand its Empowerment Center, a “one-stop shop” for students needing additional resources to obtain GEDs or continue their higher education aspirations.

“The $1 million investment in San Antonio College’s Empowerment Center is critical to making sure everyone in our community — from our veterans, to our Dreamers, to our foster youth — has what they need to learn,” Casar said.

Investments are also expected to expand programs and services offered through the facility.

SAC applied for the grant last year; it was approved as part of the first round of the appropriations government funding packages passed by the U.S. House on March 6. President Joe Biden signed them three days later.
