The Center is comprised of a strong team of national experts on Hispanic issues, and is a hub of research to improve the lives of Hispanics across three priority areas—(1) poverty reduction and self-sufficiency, (2) healthy marriage and responsible fatherhood, and (3) early care and education. The Center was established by a 2013 cooperative agreement from the Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation within the Administration for Children and Families to Child Trends in partnership with Abt Associates and university partners - University of Maryland-College Park, University of North Carolina – Greensboro, and New York University.
