OCHLA launches community-capacity, building initiative


Columbus, Feb. 25, 2008: Through the Grassroots Capacity Building Initiative, the Ohio Commission on Hispanic/Latino Affairs (OCHLA) is launching a series of workshops during the months of March and April across the state of Ohio. 


The program seeks to build the capacity of Latino leadership and community organizations through training in grant writing, leadership, board governance, and legislative advocacy.


The Grant Writing Training program will equip participants to identify projects with grant funding appeal, learn how to locate and select potential grant funders, and understand how to organize and produce an effective grant proposal. 


Attendants will also learn how to effectively engage in Legislative Advocacy by recognizing the areas of responsibility within the House and Senate. At the end of the workshop, they will be prepared to identify and select appropriate officials with whom to speak, participants will also learn to evaluate the best approach of engagement– written correspondence, telephone calls and/or visits. 


 “Building the capacity of grassroots organizations is critical so they may better serve the growing needs of Hispanic Ohioans and support their integration into society. We support OCHLA’s efforts to partner with local groups and welcome this kind of training for the community,” commented Rosa Caskey, Ohio Director for the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC).
