Boosting Hispanic/Latino Entrepreneurship and Economic Mobility - Data to Support Request for Funding

CGR was engaged by the Ibero-American Action League to compile and analyze data to support the organization’s application for funding to support entrepreneurship and workforce development for the Hispanic/Latino population in four Upstate New York cities: Rochester, Buffalo, Albany and Amsterdam. Our team gathered data from the U.S. Census Bureau, NYS Department of Labor and other sources. The data showed significant disparities in areas including poverty, concentrated poverty, income, education levels and business ownership – supporting the need for increased funding and more effective supports for the development of Latino entrepreneurship.
