Future Funding Opportunities

At St. David’s Foundation, we believe in inviting new perspectives and co-creating with community members to ensure our work continues to evolve and encompass different perspectives. The ability to create new relationships and incorporate innovative tools to support organizations helps to drive better health outcomes for our Central Texas community.

Here you will find upcoming funding opportunities for 2019 that support our Strategic Priorities, and vision to make Central Texas the healthiest community in the world.

Home Visiting RFP

The Foundation intends to release an RFP (estimated by early April) to expand home visiting capacity in Central Texas.  Organizations eligible to apply must be either a tax exempt or a public entity and provide services to families living in at least one of the following counties: Bastrop, Caldwell, Hays, Travis, or Williamson.

The RFP will provide funding for:

  • Planning grants to support communities interested in exploring home visiting as a model to improve the local continuum of early child care services
  • Implementation grants for communities/organizations who have already completed necessary planning and are ready to start up or expand home visiting.

Healthy Parks RFP

Parks support active living, stress reduction, and connected communities.  For the past year, St. David’s Foundation has partnered with the Trust for Public Land to work with local communities and subject matter experts to create the Healthy Parks Plan for Travis, Bastrop, and Caldwell Counties.  The plan will be finalized this spring.  The Foundation intends to release an RFP (estimated early to mid-summer) to fund projects that align with the Healthy Parks Plan for TBC and that incorporate the planning tools and resources that were developed for the project.  Organizations eligible to apply must be either a tax exempt organization or a public entity serving Bastrop, Caldwell, or eastern Travis county.

The RFP will consider proposals for:

  • Infrastructure improvements, park activation (e.g., marketing and programming), evaluation, intergenerational connection, and other community-driven projects that incorporate creative placemaking and health.
  • The RFP is not intended to support ongoing program operations nor may funds be used to backfill municipal responsibilities (e.g., sidewalks, lighting).
