Estimated Total Program Funding:


Estimated Size of Grant:

Up to $100,000.

Term of Contract:

The project is expected to be completed within 12 months of the date the grant money is received by the organization.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Nonprofit organizations eligible to apply for grants must be within the outer boundary of Bluebonnet’s service area, including municipalities that are not served by Bluebonnet. For example, nonprofit organizations located in cities not served by Bluebonnet, such as Bastrop, Brenham, Lockhart and Giddings, but whose services benefit the surrounding co-op service area, are eligible to apply for Bluebonnet Community Grants.

Organizations that apply for but do not receive grants may reapply during the next grant cycle. Organizations that receive a grant must wait 18 months and fully use their grant money before being eligible to apply for another grant.

Organizations not eligible for the program include for-profit entities, organizations that engage in political lobbying, and individuals or nonprofit organizations limited to group membership.

Projects not eligible include completed projects, religious or church-sponsored facilities that can be used only by church members, land acquisition, debt-reduction programs, political lobbying, sponsorships and advertising.

Pre-Application Information:

Because the deadline falls on a holiday or weekend, it is extended to 5:00 PM on February 16.

To be considered for a Bluebonnet Community Grant, organizations must submit a completed application form, program narrative, budget summary for capital projects, project timeline, pictures of the project or asset (if applicable), current Internal Revenue Service (IRS) documentation confirming tax-exempt status (if applicable), a completed IRS Form W-9, and a list of elected body or board of directors with their individual contact information.

Additional requirements are stated on the attached grant application.
