NYC Municipal ID Law Signed PDF Print E-mail

A broad coalition of community advocates and leaders was instrumental in making this legislation possible.

HF Awarded $380K Kellogg Grant to Launch Campaign for Children's Future PDF Print E-mail

The Hispanic Federation was awarded a two-year, $380,000 grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation to launch its Campaign for Children’s Future, an unprecedented and groundbreaking initiative aimed at mobilizing individual donors to support Early Childhood/Pre-K education in the Latino community.

"Research has shown that low-income Latino children who experience just one year of pre-school make dramatic improvements in achievement and behavior,” said Jose Calderón, HF’s President. “The Campaign for Children’s Future sounds a clarion call to donors big and small to fund early childhood and Pre-K education. We will channel their gifts into proven programs that increase long-term academic success among Latino children.”

President's Message: 7.25.14 PDF Print E-mail

We are extremely proud to have been at the forefront of the development and passage of a $2.5 million Communities of Color Nonprofit Stabilization Fund (CCNSF) in New York City's budget. This unprecedented initiative – first in the history of the New York City Council - is the culmination of a hard-fought, three-year long grassroots effort by a broad and diverse coalition led by HF.

This initiative goes to the heart of our mission. As many of you know, the Hispanic Federation was created to support the work of Latino community-based organizations and I am deeply gratified that we have a track record of delivering on that promise that is unparalleled in our community. Through direct grants and organizational development assistance, HF has invested more than 40 million dollars over the past two decades to support the administration, programs and advocacy efforts of its Latino nonprofit network. It is a remarkable history of impact. However, our work is far from done.

National Latino, Asian Pacific Islander, Labor and Faith Leaders Release 2014 National Immigration Score Card PDF Print E-mail

National Latino and Asian American and Pacific Islander groups as well as labor and Evangelical leaders have announced an unprecedented alliance and civic engagement initiative, beginning with release of the 2014 National Immigration Score Card that shows how Congress failed on the issue of immigration reform.

"After the 2012 election, Congress held out handfuls of pledges to enact immigration reform. However, opposition from anti-immigration extremists turned those hands into balled up fists, delivering stinging blows to the push for reform and immigrant families," the 10 national community, civil rights and faith leaders said in a joint statement released on Monday, July 28. "Congress may try to ignore us and the immigration issue, but we will not."
