Our Executive Director Irma Márquez Trapero got the chance to speak to KARE 11 about how the MN legislature passed a bill that will renew the Nonprofit Infrastructure Grant Program. As of today, only 1.5% of grant dollars go to serving the Latinx community even though Latinx make up the second largest minority in the state. The Nonprofit Infrastructure Grant Program of $4 million will help BIPOC nonprofits with budgets of less than $1 million over the next 2 years. LatinoLEAD is one of the recipients of a portion of this funding and we are eager to continue be able to grow innovative and sustainable programs for our Latinx community here in Minnesota.
Thanks to our partners in community CAAL and Propel Nonprofits
