Emerging Latino Communities


The Emerging Latino Communities (ELC) Initiative combines capacity-building grants of up to $20,000 with additional funding for targeted technical assistance aimed at strengthening the community organizing and leadership development efforts of community organizing groups in emerging Latino communities. Technical assistance is also focused on building organizational capacity in the areas of governance, fundraising and resource development, strategic planning, financial management, and program planning and evaluation, and is aimed at building the long-term sustainability of the grantee organizations.
