NALCAB represents and serves a geographically an
ethnically diverse group of more than 100 non-profit community development and asset building organizations in more than 40 states and the District of Columbia that are anchor institutions in our nation’s Latino communities. NALCAB members are experts in implementing responsible, market-based strategies for creating jobs, developing neighborhood assets and building family wealth. They include affordable housing developers, micro-lenders, economic development corporations and
consumer counseling agencies.
In order to build assets in Latino families, communities and organizations, NALCAB works with its members to increase the flow of capital into low- and moderate-income communities through responsible, market-based and culturally relevant business models.
Increasing opportunities for economic mobility for Latinos is crucial for the future strength of the US economy. NALCAB helps to increase those opportunities through our policy efforts and program work: Equitable Neighborhood Development, Family Financial Capability, and Small Business Investment.
Since 2008, NALCAB has been a catalyst for more than $300 million in investment through its member network.
