Grants to Texas nonprofit organizations and neighborhood associations in eligible regions for capacity building programs. Applicants must submit a letter of intent prior to submitting a full application. Consideration will be given to organizations and groups that serve the neighborhoods with the highest poverty levels in Tarrant County. Program areas include: education, employment, health, housing, and community enrichment.
ToolBox Grants provide Tarrant County-based nonprofit organizations with capacity building grants to improve their strength and stability. Capacity building projects address organizational effectiveness, leadership development, or operational efficiency, and are intended to be one-time, transformative investments.
The 2018-2020 grant cycle is focusing on nonprofits serving the neighborhoods with the highest poverty levels in Tarrant County. Recent City of Fort Worth research, coupled with the Community Foundation’s report, Growing Up in North Texas, highlights the many ways in which multi-dimensional poverty (e.g. scarcity in education, health, income and employment) impacts local families. Specific neighborhoods in the community are disproportionately affected by the compounding impacts of poverty.
