Community Assistance Grants

 

For more than 90 years, The Junior League of Houston, Inc. has been committed to improving the Houston community. The Junior League is committed to exploring new opportunities that expand its community outreach through Community Assistance Grants.

The Community Assistance Committee evaluates grant applications for projects in the greater Houston community that do not currently receive volunteer support from the League and makes funding recommendations to the League’s Board of Directors for consideration. Specifically, requests that address a critical or basic need, fund a pilot program and/or expand a significant service to the community are considered.

Focus Areas

The focus areas for the 2019 – 2020 Community Assistance Grants are listed below:

  • Children’s Education
  • Abuse/Neglect of Children
