Impact Austin Announces Semi-Finalists: 2021 Community and Education Grants
And then there were six.
The 71 members of Impact Austin's spring Grant Review Committees (GRCs) performed initial review of 80 total applications (42 in Education and 38 for the Community Grant), and then reserved 12 for sub-committee review. Now three of the six applicants in each category will advance to virtual site visits during April 29-May 1.
