  • Description

This report reveals how Hispanic Foundation's COVID-related grantmaking empowered hundreds of Latino community-based organizations to keep their doors open during the first 15 months of the pandemic, even as others were forced to close theirs. Between April 2020 and September 2021, HF's COVID-related grants – totaling $20.6 million to more than 350 nonprofits in 38 states, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia – often arrived before other funding, including federal assistance. HF recently surveyed nearly 300 of its Latino nonprofit partners about the reach and impact of the Federation's COVID-19 grants during the pandemic.
