HISPANIC FEDERATION EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE FUND

Hispanic Federation, in partnership with the Miranda Family, launched a Covid-19 Emergency Assistance Fund in March 2020 to support Latino communities throughout the nation, and the institutions that serve them locally. With a focus on helping the most vulnerable and impacted segments of our community – seniors, children and families living in poverty, undocumented immigrants, farmworkers, day laborers, poultry and meatpacking plant workers, people without health insurance, and migrant families and refugees – the Hispanic Federation’s Fund has grown to become the most far-reaching Latino Covid-19 emergency relief effort in the country. The Fund is actively supporting over 250 community-based organizations in 26 states and Puerto Rico to provide food, cash, testing, housing, education, health care, workforce development and other vital assistance to hundreds of thousands of people impacted by the virus. Through the end of November 2020, more than $14 million had been committed by the Federation’s Fund to make these efforts possible.

This Fund is available for Federation member agencies and select Latino nonprofit partner organizations serving primarily Black, Brown and Immigrant communities. Grants will only be considered for eligible member and partner organizations in the United States and Puerto Rico. For more information about the Fund, please contact our Senior Director for Grantmaking and Operations, Almirca Santiago, at asantiago@hispanicfederation.org.
