City reopens relief grants for nonprofits

Wednesday, September 16, 2020 by Tai Moses

The Economic Development Department will be reopening the city’s Non-Profit Relief Grant – a $6.35 million fund providing up to $20,000 grants – on Sept. 21 in an attempt “to reach additional Austin nonprofit organizations facing hardships due to the economic impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic.” Sylnovia Holt-Rabb, acting director of the EDD, said in an announcement, “We have revised eligibility based on lessons learned and review of applications from the first round to ensure grant guidelines accommodate more successful applications. The reopening of the Austin Non-Profit Relief Grant will ensure the $6.35 million that (the) mayor and City Council allocated will support our local nonprofit organizations who are critical to the recovery of our community.” Visit the Austin Non-Profit Relief Grant Program Dashboard for grant details.
