Impact Austin Names Four Finalists for 2023 Fall Grants

Impact Austin's Equity and Health & Well-Being Grant Review Committees (GRCs) have named two finalists each for fall funding. All four finalists will receive an Impact Austin grant at our November 14 Town Hall Meeting.


The fall grant review process kicked off with 66 applications for funding. GRCs chose the 11 strongest for deep-dive review in subcommittees. From there, three nonprofits in each focus area were selected for site visits. In this week's last meetings, GRCs named four finalists that will receive Impact Austin grants.


Congratulations to these finalists, our newest Community Partners.
