Grants to Texas nonprofit organizations for capacity-building programs to better serve the community in eligible regions. Applicants must submit a letter of intent prior to submitting a full application. Consideration will be given to organizations that serve the neighborhoods with the highest poverty levels in Tarrant County. Program areas include education, employment, mental and physical health, and housing.
ToolBox grants will provide Tarrant County-based nonprofits with capacity building support to address board governance, fundraising, or strategic planning in order to improve their strength and stability for the long run. These capacity building grants are intended to be one-time, transformative gifts that make a significant difference in the way the organization works.
Specific neighborhoods in the Tarrant County community are affected disproportionately by the compounding impacts of poverty, including lack of income, low-performing schools, poor health, and transportation barriers. The Centers for Disease Control’s Social Vulnerability Index (SVI) uses indicators such as these to determine community susceptibility to the impacts of disasters. ToolBox grants aim to strengthen nonprofits so they can more effectively support, uplift, and strengthen residents of Tarrant County’s most vulnerable communities.
