Impact Austin Names Six Nonprofits for Site Visits

Impact Austin's spring grant cycle is one step closer to awards, with six nonprofits selected for site visits by the Community and Education Grant Review Committees (GRCs). In June, Impact Austin will award four grants across two focus areas totaling $241,200. Within each focus area, the nonprofit receiving the most member votes will receive a grant of $96,500 for the purpose outlined in its proposal. The second nonprofit in each focus area will receive an unrestricted award of $24,100.


Thank you to Anne Helmick-Lyon and Jerrica Deloney Witte, our GRC Coordinators. Impact Austin's Grant Finance Committee (GFC) is led by Barbara Hambleton, Lauren Lewis, and Coordinator Margaret Ballinger.
