Our accomplishments

The Hispanic Access Foundation has a long list of accomplishments, large and small. We’re particularly proud that:

  • We have directly assisted more than 80,000 Latinos in improving their lives.

  • We have helped to create seven national monuments – Browns Canyon (CO), San Gabriel Mountains (CA), Sand to Snow (CA), Mojave Trails (CA), Castle Mountains (CA), Boulder White-Clouds (ID), Castner Range (TX) and Basin & Range (NV).

  • We have placed more than 200 young Latinos in internships helping to expose them to new careers through our MANO Project.

  • We have developed a strong, trust-based relationship with Latino faith leaders, who serve as a connector and help enhance our credibility within the community.

  • Latino Conservation Week continues to grow – 2018 was celebrated with more than 150 events by more than 190 partners.

  • Our tax education program, in partnership with H&R Block, directly assisted more than 46,000 in understanding and navigating the American tax system.

  • We helped to permanently reauthorize the Land and Water Conservation Fund – a critical tool in providing the Latino and other diverse communities with access to the outdoors.

  • Our Hispanic Leadership Network is developing the capacity and skillset of Latino faith leaders and by 2023, we will have had more than 100 leaders complete the one-year program.

  • We have produced two short films -- "Milk and Honey" and "Land, Water y Comunidad" -- which have elevated the Latino voice on conservation issues affecting their community.

  • Our CDC-funded cancer awareness program led to more than 1,500 Latinos being screened for breast and colorectal cancer.
