Travis County Medical Alliance
Grant Application Procedures
Please submit one unbound copy of the Application Packet that includes all items listed under Proposal Guidelines below by Friday, August 16, 2019. After a complete packet is received, the Grants Committee will review your request. Upon recommendation from that committee, the Executive Board will then consider your proposal. Most grants awarded are $5,000 or less, although that is not strictly the case. Organizations must be an established non-profit with 501(c)3 status.
Projects must be health care related (Those which provide and/or support direct patient care are preferred).
Note: TCMA has removed the following restrictions:
Funding for compensation is no longer prohibited, as had historically been the case. Grant applications will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
Funding for organizations outside of Travis County is also no longer prohibited. This change was made so that our grants align with our mission - working for a healthier Central Texas.
Please send one completed application packet to:
