Texas Pride Impact Funds' work reflects the dynamic and diverse makeup of our LGBTQ+ communities and is intentionally broad to address their full suite of dreams and needs. Our Core Ideologies center equity and justice in all we do. Furthermore, our Discovery Grantmaking prioritizes a focus on historically under-resourced communities to spur innovation, build grantee capacity and expand access especially in rural and border communities as well as our urban centers.
We are seeking an inventive, energetic, and resourceful individual to lead our grant programmatic work. Along with TPIF leadership, the Project Director will be responsible for designing, promoting, and executing grant programs in addition to managing our planned 2022 cohort-based education program to a select group of grantees.

We proudly announce our ViiV Healthcare selection as a 2022-24 Amp Grant Program Lead. Through this funding, we will operate micro-granting, capacity-building, and network-building programs to grassroots organizations in Texas that are leading outreach and engagement efforts to people living with or vulnerable to HIV. Our program, ImpactTXGR (Impact Texas Grant), will seek and fund organizations serving our target populations: individuals from the transgender community and MSM (gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men), primarily Black and Latinx populations most vulnerable to HIV and the stigma associated with it, and who face the steepest barriers to obtaining treatment. Community-based organizations working in the areas of Advocacy for Persons Living with HIV (PLWH) and Linkage and Engagement to Care will have the opportunity to receive general operating support and technical assistance through three consecutive one-year grants.
The ImpactTXGR Program will compliment our annual Community Grants. Follow our website and ENewsletter over the next several months for further details on both programs and watch for our Request For Proposal (RFP) announcements late Q1 2022.
Our 2021 Community Grants Program continues to recognize organizations and projects that address the current and direct needs of communities while also seeking to correct the systemic injustices that unfairly burden people living within these identities and at their intersections. On Saturday, October 9 the TPIF Board of Directors approved the recommendations of our Grant Action Group and we proudly present this year’s 21 grant recipients.
