Community Investment Grants

Funding Critical Community Partners

United Way fights poverty in our community, and we know we are not in this fight alone. UWATX partners with critical community partners to identify proven strategies toward a common goal and then we back these efforts with Community Investment Grants (CIGs) to amplify our collective impact.

United Way currently funds in two programmatic areas:

  • Early Childhood Development
  • 2-Gen

Current CIGs partners include:


Our grant funding is made possible by the financial contributions of thousands of community investors each year. UWATX is committed to serving as a strategic steward of these community dollars.

Request for Proposal

United Way for Greater Austin’s funding cycle begins with a request for proposals in the fall. Updates on this process will be posted here. To be notified when our next cycle opens, email Sara Reeves.
