HF Awards more than $300K to Latino Community-Based Organizations PDF Print E-mail

Within the first decade, the Hispanic Federation’s CORE (Community Organization Resource Expansion) Initiative was established to help support Latino nonprofits with grants for core operating expenses.  Whether it was underwriting the costs of a financial audit or supporting a construction project to make an agency’s building accessible and efficient, the CORE Initiative provided grants that private philanthropy and government funders typically eschewed.  “The CORE Initiative was designed to provide our agencies with the financial support for projects they needed but would have difficulty funding from traditional sources,” said Hispanic Federation President José Calderón.  “Some of these projects weren’t attention-getting but they were critical to the success of our agencies.” HF’s signature grant-making program is central to the Federation’s mission of fortifying Hispanic nonprofits.

This year, the Hispanic Federation has awarded $368,000 to 20 member agencies to support their core operations.  Among this year’s grant recipients are local and national agencies from New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut.

Here are all 2015 CORE awardees. Please join us in celebrating them!

HF Focuses on Voter Registration PDF Print E-mail

The Latino electorate has grown over the past decade to become an essential voting block in municipal, state-wide and presidential elections.  Strategically located, dynamic and growing, Latino voters have the power to determine our nation's next President. However, before that happens we need to make sure Latino citizens of voting age are engaged, mobilized and empowered to exercise their true power. While there are more than 20 million Latinos eligible to vote in the United States, Latino voter turnout rates lag behind other racial and ethnic groups.

The work being carried out by Latino nonprofits like HF - and the incredible commitment of Univision 41 and Telemundo 47 to drive Hispanic voter mobilization - raise hopes that Latino political engagement will grow dramatically. Thanks in large part to these local and national efforts, Latino voters represented 11 percent of the electorate.
