6 Semi-Finalists Advance to Site Visits for Fall Funding
Impact Austin Grant Review Committees (GRCs) will now prepare for the next stage of review for Fall Grants: site visits from October 6 to October 8. Site visits for Equity Grants will be virtual. Site visits for the Health & Well-Being Grants may be virtual or in-person, as the semi-finalists prefer.
As background, Impact Austin invites nonprofits to request funding for programs, capacity-building initiatives, or both. Applications for fall funding were open from July 8 to August 2, and 56 proposals were received. GRCs are comprised of 47 Impact Austin members, including co-chairs and advisors. Grants totaling $188,400 will be awarded on November 15 at our Town Hall Meeting.

Expanding AVANCE-Austin's Evidence-Based Parent-Child Education Program (PCEP)

Career Pathways for Immigrant and Refugee Women in Central Texas
HEALTH & WELL-BEING GRANT - 35 applications were initially reviewed, and 6 underwent deep-dive review. The three semi-finalists advancing to site visits are:
