To provide general support to the National Council of La Raza (NCLR) and project support for its Wealth-Building Policy Project. NCLR is the largest national Latino civil rights and advocacy organization in the United States. To achieve its mission of improving opportunities for Latinos, NCLR conducts applied research, policy analysis, and advocacy, providing a Latino perspective in five key areas: assets/investments, civil rights/immigration, education, employment and economic status, and health.

The Wealth-Building Policy Project focuses on protecting homeownership as the foundation for family and inter-generational wealth through three strategies: 1) stabilizing Latino households and communities and preventing further loss of wealth; 2) promoting fair and responsible homeownership opportunities for Latino and immigrant families; and 3) empowering Latino leaders to engage in policy debates on homeownership preservation and opportunities.

This grant was co-funded with the Neighborhood Stabilization Initiative.
