Best Practices

Municipal Best Practices

LGHN commissioned the University of North Texas to survey cities around the nation to determine the best practices local government conducts in the Hispanic community. The study was funded by the Annie E. Casey Foundation.

The survey was conducted during January/February of 2005 and was sent to Hispanic city managers and to non-Hispanic city managers who manage cities with a 12% Hispanic population. The survey also investigated information regarding effects from Hispanics to local government services, housing, families, personal safety, and needs for lower income families. Additional information was also sought to scrutinize immigrant services and the best practices conducted by differing municipalities.
