Master Government List of Federally Funded R&D Centers (FFRDCs)


There are 39 Federally Funded Research & Development Centers. There are none that are controlled by an HBCU or HBCU related entity. Some universities have set up “subsidiary” entities to manage their involvement in some of the FFRDCs  listed below.

These entities are funded by the federal tax pool that we all pay into. Yet, we are not represented at all institutionally in appropriation of any of these funds. Essentially leaving African Americans to pay into the federal tax pool but locked out of taking any of it out and paying into another community’s benefit.
