Higher Education Assistance Funds (HEAF)
The Texas Legislature, through an amendment to Article VII of the Texas Constitution and Chapter 62 of the Texas Education Code, established the Higher Education Assistance Fund (HEAF) in 1985. HEAF funds are appropriated for construction, library, and equipment expenditures for Texas public universities that do not benefit from the Permanent University Fund (PUF) bond proceeds.
The document entitled Guidelines for Expenditure of Higher Education Assistance Funds was developed to assist departments in determining the appropriateness of expenditures using HEAF funds.
For any questions regarding the use of HEAF funds not included in these guidelines, contact the Purchasing Office at 956-882-8219.
