NYC Municipal ID Law Signed PDF Print E-mail

Starting next year, New York City will have the largest municipal ID program in the country. This landmark legislation - which will allow all New Yorkers to more readily engage with government agencies, law enforcement and financial institutions - was signed into law in July thanks to the leadership of Mayor de Blasio, Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito and lead bill sponsors Council Members Daniel Dromm and Carlos Menchaca. A broad coalition of community advocates and leaders was instrumental in making this legislation possible.

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.

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.”
