Grants to Delaware nonprofit organizations for a broad range of programs and projects that focus on the integration and well-being of the Latino population. Funding is intended to promote educational opportunities, support access to healthcare, and advance advocacy programs that promote academic success and health equity.

Educational Opportunities: Programs help Spanish-dominant immigrant families learn to read and write in their native language as well as to communicate in English. Community and school programs help Latino families integrate and reach academic and career goals. Programs should change lives by:

  • Educating Spanish-dominant Immigrants to gain critical language, parenting, academic, and career skills.
  • Assisting Latino children and youth (Kindergarten through High School) to achieve trajectory-changing personal growth, social emotional competence, and academic success.

Access to Healthcare - Creating Healthier Families and Communities: Eligible programs increase bilingual, culturally relevant care (screening, diagnosis, education and treatment) for Latinos affected by chronic stress, mental or behavioral disorders, or other major health common conditions that reduce the quality and length of life. In addition, programs should increase access to critically needed care by supporting affordable, community-based programs staffed by bilingual and culturally sensitive professionals practicing in trusted settings.

Advocacy - Promoting Academic Success and Health Equity: Funding support and collaboration with partners increase community understanding of the education and health issues of Delaware’s Latino families. These partnerships support equity resulting in improved academic success and health by engaging Latino students, their parents, education and health professionals, and community organizations to learn and take actions that shape important policies.

The Fund, in partnership with nonprofit organizations:

  • Assesses the needs, challenges, and opportunities experienced by Latino families as well as the social and political environments that influence their health and learning.
  • Increases the quality and growth of the most impactful educational programs, identifying strategies that increase learner recruitment, retention and long-term impact.
  • Strengthens parent engagement in their children’s education, psychosocial development, and pathways to independence.
  • Supports the preparation and hiring of more bilingual and culturally sensitive educators and healthcare providers.
  • Improves access to healthcare through collaboration with health systems and community providers – exploring the use of technology to connect patients/families to providers.
  • Collaborates with trusted nonprofits associated with local community institutions such as schools, libraries, parks, and churches to increase accessibility for education and health services.
  • Connects with nonprofit providers, funders, and private and public partners to facilitate and fund collaborative programs and services.
  • Expands the understanding of the culture and needs of Hispanic Delawareans.
  • Educates and engages community members and organizations to advocate for public awareness and policy development.
