State Fair of Texas opens fall grant cycle

Written by Mindia Whittier

Two funding opportunities are offered by the organization annually.

The State Fair of Texas is now accepting applications for its fall 2022 grant cycle.

Grants are available to support economic development, capacity building for nonprofits, educational programming and social and racial justice. The State Fair of Texas supports initiatives that are working in the following zip codes: 75210, 75215, 75223, and 75228. Limited support is available for work in the southern sector of Dallas that impacts residents in the South Dallas/Fair Park neighborhood.

Applications are reviewed by a committee. Collaboration is prioritized in the assessment process. Applications that do not demonstrate existing relationships with local entities are not favorably reviewed.

Funding requests must be submitted online by Sept. 26 at 5 p.m. The State Fair of Texas also offers a spring funding cycle.
