Grant Application Procedures


Please submit one unbound copy of the Application Packet that includes all items listed under Proposal Guidelines (see below) by Friday, August 20, 2021. After a complete packet is received, the Grants Committee will review your request.  Upon recommendation from the Grants Committee, the Executive Board will then consider your proposal. Grant amounts are generally $5,000 or less, with some exceptions. Eligible organizations must be established nonprofits with 501(c)3 status. Projects must be healthcare related. (Those providing and/or supporting direct patient care are preferred).


Note: TCMA has removed the following restrictions

  1. Funding for compensation is no longer prohibited, as had historically been the case. Grant applications will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

  2. Funding for organizations outside of Travis County is no longer prohibited. This change was made to consider grants that align with our mission but operate outside the county, but within Central Texas.
