$250,000 awarded for research

Our Center for Economic Research & Forecasting (CERF) with Executive Director Matthew Fienup and Dan Hamilton, Director of Economics recently received the good news that the Bank for America Charitable Foundation has awarded CERF with $250,000 for research which seeks to identify the total economic contribution of Hispanics by U.S. State. This new research will build on CERF's ongoing work on the national-level Latino GDP Report, whose most recent edition has been published at the end of September. The award from the Bank of America is a great testimony to the high quality of work at CERF, and it enables us to contribute to the commitment the university has made as a Hispanic-Serving Institution. Congratulations to Matthew and Dan!
