Latinx Collaborative Announces Grantees

Category: News and Announcements

Greensboro, NC - The NC Collaborative for Strong Latinx Communities (NCCSLC) is proud to announce its first cohort of grantees of Latinx-led organizations.  Of the 126 organizations that applied for this grant funding, a group of 29 organizations was selected, representing a wide array of approaches and geographic areas.  Though groups and organizations selected are as diverse as the communities they represent, they all share a common goal of working diligently to strengthen and amplify the well-being of NC’s Latinx population.

This served as the first opportunity for the NCCSLC to implement participatory grantmaking as a vehicle for bringing equity to life.  A group of 11 Latinx leaders and 3 foundation representatives were selected to form part of a Unifying Council, the core group tasked with decision-making for this process.  Starting this summer, this group convened several times to clarify scope of work and process, articulate group agreements, review grant applications and ultimately make decisions on which organizations would receive funding.

The 29 groups selected will receive 2-year general operating support to fuel the work that they are doing across the state.  Given the disparate impact of the Coronavirus pandemic on Latinx communities, these resources will serve as fuel and affirmation for groups already exemplifying a deep commitment to justice and power-building.

The NCCSLC began in 2018 as a group of foundations invested in the flourishing of NC’s Latinx communities who wanted to collaborate to more intentionally direct their resources.  The group’s mission is to build a healthy, inclusive and strong infrastructure to promote equitable outcomes for all North Carolinians.  To learn more about the NCCSLC and the partnering foundations and organizations, please visit their website:
