In February, a grant from Project Hope supported the creation and establishment of 12 programs at EPCC in the fields of medicine and dentistry between 1974 and 1977. This grant, along with a seven-year grant for $617,536 from the Veterans Administration Allied Health Program that was awarded in June, made it possible to purchase a complex of buildings downtown from the El Paso Independent School District and to establish the Rio Grande Campus. The Rio Grande Campus has housed most of the allied health programs ever since.
