The White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanics is now the White House Hispanic Prosperity Initiative (Initiative). The Initiative was originally established by President George H.W. Bush in 1990 to address the educational disparities faced by the Hispanic community.

In 2020, the Initiative’s scope was expanded and it was renamed the White House Hispanic Prosperity Initiative. Focused on promoting access to educational and economic opportunities for the Hispanic community, the Initiative strives to support the critical role Hispanics play in the overall prosperity of the nation and highlights the federal government’s commitment to expanding educational and economic opportunities for the Hispanic community.
