Two years after Hurricane Katrina wreaked havoc on many of New Orleans’ colleges and universities, the Carnegie Corporation of New York plans to provide $14 million in grants to help rebuild the city’s higher-education infrastructure, the Chronicle of Higher Education reported.

The grants include $2 million for Dillard University, $4 million for Xavier University of Louisiana and $5 million for Tulane University, among others. The announcement came after the Department of Education pledged $30 million in higher education grants to several states harmed by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
