The project has three goals: 1) to compile and elevate available data to construct a more detailed profile of Latinos in the State; 2) to make the data widely accessible to lawmakers, policy decision makers, state agency directors, community leaders and providers: and 3) to facilitate a data informed Latino action agenda.!services/cee5
