Impact Austin Names Six Semi-Finalists for Fall Grants

Impact Austin's Grant Review Committees (GRCs) identified three finalists each for fall funding. Six organizations total will advance to site visits in October.

Equity GRC - Equity Grants invest in equity for women and/or girls of color. The 18 member-volunteers of the Equity GRC evaluated a pool of 16 applications and identified five for deep-dive review. From that process, these three were voted to advance to the site visit phase.

The 27 GRC member-volunteers examined 50 applications, naming six for deep-dive review in September. From that process, the following three initiatives were voted to move forward to the site visit phase.
