WEBINAR – Summer in the States: A Guide to Engaging Congress Locally to Strengthen Latino Communities

For the month of August, your representatives in Congress will be back in their home districts and states for the summer district work period. This provides a unique opportunity to communicate with them locally and advocate for the federal policies that help to strengthen our local communities and increase opportunities for Latinos including; funding for the Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG), Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs), affordable housing programs, entrepreneurial assistance for small business and increased capital to support Latino entrepreneurs.
