2020 Social Innovation Grant
In November 2020, Impact Austin will award the organization’s second Social Innovation Grant. Similar to last year, this will fund a collaborative focused on advancing equity for women and/or girls of color in the Greater Austin Area.
Proposals for the Social Innovation Grant will be solicited and evaluated from July to October. This year, the Social Innovation Grant is a 1-year, restricted grant for $40,000. The new community partner will be chosen in early November by a vote with Impact Austin’s full membership.
The 2020 Social Innovation Grant Application period closed August 24, 2020. Impact Austin is no longer accepting new applications at this time.
