About NALCAB

Introduction

NALCAB strengthens the economy by advancing economic mobility for Latino communities. NALCAB is the hub of a national network of more than 120 mission-driven organizations in 40 states and DC that are anchor institutions in geographically and ethnically diverse Latino communities. Members of the NALCAB Network invest in their communities by building affordable housing, addressing gentrification, supporting small business growth, and providing financial counseling on issues such as credit building and home ownership. The large majority of the people served by the NALCAB Network are immigrants, or the children of immigrants. Our work is about giving hard-working people a shot to make it in this country.

NALCAB’ vision is to dramatically scale the flow of public and private sector capital that responsibly meets the asset building needs and opportunities in the communities and families we serve. NALCAB achieves its mission and vision by strengthening and coordinating the capacity of the NALCAB Network to deploy capital; and, by influencing investors and policy-makers with research, advocacy and technical advice.

In 2018, NALCAB provided Latino-serving non-profit organizations with more than $1 million in grants, trained 350+ practitioners and provided a wide range of technical assistance, including supporting more than $11 million in successful federal grant applications. In partnership with our members, NALCAB directly invested more than $7 million in affordable housing and small businesses. With technical assistance, research and strategic advice, NALCAB has influenced how local and federal government agencies are deploying hundreds of millions of dollars for community development and disaster recovery.

The strength of the US economy relies on the fast-growing Latino community’s hard work, entrepreneurial spirit, spending power and leadership.
