In addition, NALCAB works in the areas of Fair Housing and rural capacity building for nonprofits, public housing authorities and local jurisdictions on economic development and affordable housing development. NALCAB’s experience with the Latino community provides a unique perspective that addresses the needs of communities throughout the country.

Grants & Grant Making

NALCAB opens access to capital by preparing grant applications, coordinating collaborative applications among members, communicating funding opportunities and by making connections to funders and investors both individually and through convening with them.

NALCAB recognizes that pass-through grants are an essential aspect of a well-rounded and successful capacity building effort. Subgrant funds provide a significant incentive for nonprofits to engage fully in a technical assistance relationship with NALCAB.

NALCAB anticipates that, in some cases, these grants will build on a previous NALCAB investment of technical assistance and/or grant-making. A significant focus of NALCAB’s technical assistance efforts with subgrantees is to support their efforts to leverage the funding for securing new sources. NALCAB manages grants in accordance with a written grant management procedure.
