In 1995 the Idaho Commission of Hispanic Affairs retained plan-makers to prepare feasibility studies for the creation of a Cultural Center in Idaho for the growing Hispanic population. The studies were sponsored by The Idaho Commission on the Arts and helped determine the needs and steps necessary to implement the Center. HCCI was incorporated in May of 1997, and received its 501(c) (3) non-profit status in April 1998. It functioned as a center without walls until a 33,000 square foot building opened its doors in September 2003.
