CHCI History:

The Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC) was organized in 1976 by five Hispanic Congressmen - Herman Badillo (NY), Baltasar Corrada (PR), E. "Kika" de la Garza (TX), Henry B. Gonzalez (TX), and Edward
Roybal (CA) - to monitor
legislative and other
government activity that
affects Hispanics. The
Caucus was originally
formed to serve as a
legislative organization
through which
legislative action,
as well as executive
and judicial actions,
could be monitored to
ensure that the needs of Hispanics were being met. The founders' goal was to work in conjunction with other groups, both inside and outside Congress, to strengthen the Federal commitment to Hispanic citizens and heighten the Hispanic community's awareness of the operation and function of the American political system.

The mission of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI) is to develop the next generation of Latino leaders® through competitive, nationally-recognized internship, fellowship, and college access programs. The founders of CHCI had a clear vision of a strong America made possible with the many contributions of educated and civic-minded Latino leaders engaged in and contributing to all aspects of U.S. society. This vision was founded on three cornerstones for success: education attainment and college access (Educate), leadership development programs in D.C. (Empower), and access to a powerful network of Latino leaders in the United States (Connect). 

























It was the intention of these congressmen to develop educational programs and other activities that would increase the opportunities for Hispanics to participate in and contribute to the American political system.

In 1978, three members of CHC, Congressman Edward Roybal, Congressman E. "Kika" de la Garza, and Congressman Baltasar Corrada established a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization to serve as an educational institute whose programs would serve the national Hispanic community.

In October 1981, the House Committee on House Administration drafted new regulations stipulating fundraising activities were to be moved from all government premises. Members of the CHC decided to maintain a legislative support organization on Capitol Hill, the CHC, and moved the non-profit, fundraising organization, today known as the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI) to its new residence.
