Texas Grant Resources

Just like the state itself, the Texas nonprofit sector is diverse, expansive, and embedded in local context. According to the OneStar Foundation, Texas boasts over 100,000 nonprofits registered with the IRS (excluding many congregations, grassroots, and community groups), making the Texas nonprofit workforce the 5th largest in the nation.

This doesn’t mean, however, that nonprofit grant resources are distributed equally throughout the Lone Star State—there is a significant need to expand access to nonprofit funding and capacity building in many underserved regions. So if you’re looking for Texas nonprofit funding it doesn’t matter if you’re from Houston, El Paso, Corpus Christi, Dallas, or another Texas locale- we’ve got you covered. Want to know more about how to win funding in Texas? We suggest starting with the following steps.

TEXAS FUNDING SOURCES
TEXAS RESOURCES & TOOLS

Because Texas is so large, many nonprofit funding sources are geographically clustered. This means that many nonprofits face limited access to grant funding information, even though grant opportunities exist in abundance. So if you’ve been wondering how to get grants in Texas, you’re in the right place! Whether you’re in Austin, Brownsville, Plano, Fort Worth, or another Texas city— the following resources will help you find the nonprofit funding you’re looking for.

One of the most influential state organizations is the Texas Association of Nonprofits (TANO), whose mission “is to connect, strengthen, and support the nonprofit community for the public good of Texas.” If you’re looking for government nonprofit grants, start by Finding Your Representative and visiting their website for a list of federal government grants relevant to Texas nonprofits.

Another great resource is the United Ways of Texas, which has locations and community funding grants available throughout the state. Below you’ll find an additional list of helpful Texas nonprofit resources. If you know of a resource we may have missed, reach out and let us know!
