COVID-19 Relief Fund
The League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) is offering temporary relief to address the COVID-19 pandemic. We are aware of the enormous burden that the pandemic is having on our Latino communities and we are actively taking steps to provide assistance where it is needed the most. LULAC has created the COVID-19 relief fund to support individuals and LULAC Councils. We will be providing microgrants towards general aid, hunger relief, technology, mobility/transportation, mental health, and mentoring and online educational support.
