Grant Description

Previous Page Version

Grants to Texas organizations and agencies to improve the lives of community residents in eligible regions. Funding is intended for programs that address crucial life needs and advance the common good in the following areas of focus: financial stability, basic needs, education, and health. Eligible programs benefit residents of Central Texas.

United Way of Central Texas (UWCT) believes a healthy community learns well, earns well, and lives well. Partnering with agencies in the community that focus on goals and outcomes in the areas of education, financial stability, health and basic needs – the building blocks for a good life – the United Way will work to create long-lasting changes that inspire hope and create opportunities for a better tomorrow. 

The United Way of Central Texas annually invests into programs and initiatives advancing the common good in the areas of health, education, financial stability, and basic needs; the four key pillars to the United Way's Community Impact Model: 

  • Health: The United Way of Central Texas endeavors to promote a healthier community. Along with their partners, UWCT addresses the issue of health care access with a variety of strategies, including connecting people to health services through free clinics, prescription drug financial assistance. Accomplishing these goals decreases medical costs assumed by community hospitals, insurance rate payers, and taxpayers - particularly by reducing unnecessary emergency room visits. For additional information, see:
  • Financial Stability:  UWCT focuses on lasting income solutions (that go beyond charity) to help people build skills and education necessary to get, keep and advance in a good job. They work to offer financial wellness, coaching and planning to help people better manage income, savings and assets. For additional information, see:
  • Education: UWCT funded programs have been driving increased access to early childhood education programs through local collaborations. They seek lasting solutions that build educational opportunities for all. They look at the big picture to assess which resources are lacking or need strengthening, then address those gaps to keep kids on track to graduation and beyond. The UWCT also supports after school programs. Community programs engage youth and provide learning, enrichment, and leadership opportunities. These are designed to support their academic success, improve overall development, increase self-esteem, improve relationships with peers and adults, promote declines in negative, risk-taking behavior, and increase high school graduation rates. For additional information, see:
  • Basic Needs: UWCT is investing in Basic Needs programs to help people overcome crisis, lay the groundwork for independence, and help families at risk of foreclosure or eviction stay in their homes. For additional information, see:
