About this grant

The Heartland Alliance’s project, Enlaces América: Building Constituencies for a Sustainable Future, aims to ensure that leadership capacity is developed amongst the Latin American immigrant community in the United States to create an active constituency working for reform of policies and practices of international finance and trade institutions. This grant increase will support travel and related expenses for the United States and Latin American leaders to participate in the Migrant Summit of the Americas. These leaders and speakers would provide expert input on energy and infrastructure investments in Latin America.
