This report is based on the findings of the Los Angeles County Latino Assessment Study (LACLAS), which consulted with Latinos to determine the priorities, programs, and strategies for meeting the needs of their community in Los Angeles County (California). The study's main objective was to obtain information to assist governmental and philanthropic agencies, and the business sector, in funding programs to benefit Latinos. The methodology for the study included the following components: (1) a demographic review of Latinos in Los Angeles County; (2) a community survey of Latinos; (3) a leadership survey of Latinos and others who are generally recognized as leaders in the community; and (4) focus group meetings with a cross-section of Latino leaders. The information elicited identified the following primary areas of concern that require a comprehensive funding effort: (1) political participation; (2) education; (3) economic development; and (4) leadership development. Goals relating to the following issues are also discussed: (1) health; (2) social services; (3) immigration; (4) legal services; (5) crime; and (6) housing. The comprehensive involvement of public and private entities in issue selection and program design and implementation is described. A summary review of recommendations for funding priorities is provided. (JS)
