Grants to this Grantee
for building support for a balance between development and land protection
The Hispanic Access Foundation seeks to promote the interests of the Hispanic community across the country. This grant would support its work in the West to secure policies limiting the expansion of oil and gas development on public lands and to promote new protections for ecologically important land. With these funds, the grantee will identify Hispanic leaders in key communities to be spokespeople, provide Hispanic media outlets with information on the impacts of fossil energy development and the need to better protect public lands, and educate administration officials on its positions.
