Has there been any clarification of what URM hispanic is?

I keep hearing conflicting answers:

Mexican/PR only

Mexican/PR, rest a small boost

Everyone gets an equal boost

I know in some applications it's just Latino, but what about others when they want you to be specific.

Please take what I say with a grain of salt, but I've always heard PRs/Mexicans get the larger boost, and that hispanics in general might get a slight bump. But I've also heard there large variances. Arizona or Texas might give less of a boost, but Ohio State might give more.
I don't think there's gonna be a clear cut answer for you.
