The Futuro Latino Fund distributed $175,000 to 10 organizations serving the Latino community. Out of the 20 proposals, many were returning applicants, including the City Sprouts South Summer Internship Program, pictured above.

During this grant cycle, the committee funded a collaborative oral history project between OLLAS (Office of Latino and Latin American Studies) and the Union Pacific Railroad Museum, which is a first. The committee provided a general operating grant to Centro Latino of Iowa and continued its support of MYLPA, LIVE Leadership Camp, and more.

Each year, all funding decisions are made by a resident-led committee of Latino representatives who understand which investments will be most impactful in addressing the needs of their community. The next grant cycle for the fund will open on January 1, 2022.
