CTN is one of the semifinalist grant partners to receive funds from the Hispanic Impact Fund, a strategic program of Austin Community Foundation, in the area of Leadership Development. “Latino leadership matters. Although Latinos in Central Texas represent a third of the population, they are not proportionately reflected in key leadership positions across all sectors. The Fund will invest in organizations advancing Latino leadership and creating pipelines of youth, emerging, and established Latino talent, which are critical to building a thriving Central Texas.” (https://www.austincf.org/community-impact/hispanic-impact-fund/)

The fund plans to award a total $365, 000 to 28 nonprofits working in four impact areas: Early Childhood Education, Health and Wellness, Job Skills and Entrepreneurship and Leadership Development. Final funding amounts will be determined in April.
