The Enhancement for Two-Year Institution Grant Program is a subprogram of the Board of Regents' Office of Sponsored Programs Enhancement Program. The Enhancement Program has three competitive components: Traditional Enhancement, Undergraduate Enhancement, and Enhancement for Two-Year Institutions. The goal of these subprograms is to improve the research and educational infrastructure at all Louisiana institutions and in all disciplines. An additional one-time subprogram, the Post-Katrina Support Fund Initiative, identified research and educational priorities for intensive support immediately following the hurricanes of 2005.

The Enhancement Program for Two-Year Institutions, which awarded the SUSLA grants, was recently created to meet the needs of Louisiana's community college system. This subprogram shares the same objectives as Traditional and Undergraduate Enhancement, but is limited to two-year community colleges and does not have discipline eligibility rotations.
