The NCLR Family Strengthening Awards Program presents awards on an annual basis to NCLR Affiliate programs whose work in the Hispanic community has made a measurable impact in strengthening Latino families.
The NCLR Affiliate of the Year Award is bestowed once annually to an NCLR Affiliate for its exemplary work, overall, in serving its local community and for supporting NCLR's policy and programmatic initiatives.
NCLR will arrange for a total of 35 to 45 NCLR Affiliate representatives to attend on-site training sessions in fall 2010 with winners of the 2010 NCLR Family Strengthening Award.

As respected representatives of the Latino community in their state, NCLR Affiliate organizations play an important role in highlighting the dangers of anti-immigrant bills to both the Latino community and the community at large. To ensure that Affiliates are prepared to best represent the issues surrounding these dangerous state bills, on March 22, 2011 NCLR hosted a webinar to provide Affiliates with talking points and other media tips that help shape the narrative surrounding punitive state immigration legislation and make the case against these kinds of damaging policies.
