16 Nonprofits Invited to Submit Full Applications for Funding


Sixteen nonprofits have been invited to submit full proposals for three Impact Austin Program Grants of $100,000 each.


Impact Austin received 94 Letters of Inquiry (LOIs) for three Program Grants. Members of the Grant Review Committees (GRCs) thoughtfully considered the LOIs and selected 16 organizations and their projects for full applications and deeper review.


Those organizations invited to move forward from each of the three program areas are listed below. Based on a review of all proposals, this list will be further narrowed for site visits conducted in April.


Catalyst Grant applications are not included in the list below; they are still under review. Initial notifications to those applicants will be made on February 12.


Congratulations to our area nonprofits that are progressing through the grant process.
