Spotlighting Our Texas Foundations Fund

May 12, 2023 | by Michael Wilt

Through the Texas Foundations Fund, TSAHC partners with nonprofit organizations across the state to support housing services that meet the critical housing needs of underserved and very low-income Texans.

To date, TSAHC has invested more than $8 million into the program, improving access to critical home repairs and supportive housing services statewide. In 2022, we provided $1,250,000 in grant awards to 54 organizations. It was our largest funding commitment ever, and it was the most nonprofits we've awarded. 

We strive to improve the program by regularly soliciting feedback from our grantees. The feedback is reflected in the modifications we've made, such as expanding who is included in an underserved population, modifying our financial requirements to meet the needs of small organizations, and broadening supportive services to include housing counseling, financial education, and other counseling services.

Over the years, we've highlighted the tremendous work our nonprofit partners are doing, like the supportive services Samaritan House provides to individuals with chronic conditions in Fort Worth and the home repair program of Easter Seals of Central Texas.   

More recently, we spotlighted the Community Powered Revitalization program at 6 Stones Mission Network in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex and the Family Pathways program of Buckner Children and Family Services in Lufkin. This just a small sample of the inspiring work our Texas Foundations Fund grantees are doing in the communities they serve across the state.

We're currently accepting applications for the next round of Texas Foundations Fund grants. If you're interested in applying, all information on how to apply can be found on the Texas Foundations Fund web page. Most notably, there are detailed instructions on how to apply, our 2023 program guidelines, an FAQ document, and an instructional webinar recorded last month.

We invite you to apply anytime between now and the deadline of Friday, May 26, 2023.
