About Us

The mission of the Office on Latino Affairs (OLA) is to improve the quality of life of the District's Latino residents by addressing a broad range of social and economic needs through strategic management of public and private partnerships, expertise on policy, community relations, civic engagement and community-based grants.

Since 1976 the Mayor's Office on Latino Affairs (OLA) has served the Latino community of the District of Columbia.

Working with the Mayor, the City Council, the diverse governmental agencies of the District, community organizations and the private sector, OLA serves as the community liaison informing them about the different services available in the areas of health, education and social services.

OLA administers the grants assigned by the Mayor to the different community organizations, and collaborates with a wide range of DC government agencies to ensure the proper implementation of the DC Language Access Act.
