Grants to Texas nonprofit organizations and vendors in eligible locations to enhance opportunities, resources, and outcomes for formerly incarcerated individuals. Funding is intended to provide a more human-centered re-entry process for people who are transitioning back into society following a period of incarceration. The program offers two categories of grants: "Hub" awards and "Spoke" awards. Eligible applicants serve the residents of Austin.

The goal of the program is to reduce systemic barriers that prevent individuals with a criminal record from accessing stable housing, jobs, transportation, and health care. 


  • Hub Funding: An award to an organization that will serve as a "hub" or one-stop-shop where the re-entry community can receive services necessary to assist them in reaching stability. The goal of this award is to fund an organization to provide wrap-around, holistic services to individuals who are working to achieve stability after incarceration.
  • Spoke Funding: Awards will be disbursed for entities that can provide component services in new and innovative ways.  Examples include but are not limited to housing, mental and physical care, financial assistance, job and skills training, and food access.
