CHPRD (formerly Office of Hispanic Affairs) is located within the Department of State in Trenton, NJ.
The CHPRD was established in 1975 to address the needs of the Hispanic community, recognizing that it was imperative to pay particular attention to this segment of the population, which may have been historically neglected. The Office was mandated to provide funding for Hispanic initiatives in New Jersey. The CHPRD has an executive director and an advisory committee, all appointed with Governor Approval. The Secretary of State serves as an ex-officio member of the advisory committee.
