$5,000 Grants for Racial Equity Work
2017-2018 deadline has now passed. 



To be eligible to participate in CFT’s Racial Equity Letter of Inquiry (LOI) process, the applicant must meet both of the following criteria:

  1. Have a 501(c)(3) OR faith-based tax-exempt designation from the Internal Revenue Service that has been active for two years as of September 1, 2017.
  2. At least 50% of the population served must reside in Dallas County.

The Racial Equity LOI will be available here by October 10, 2018. The new racial equity LOI due date is Wednesday, December 5, 2018. The LOI review will take place over the winter months with a final decision announced via email by the end of February.

We have pushed the racial equity due date until later in the year so that we can continue learning from the 2017 grantee experience and ensure that we are responsive and effective in meeting community needs.

Thank you for your understanding and patience.
