Community Assistance Grants

Community Assistance Grants provide a link to the Junior League of Lubbock’s history. The league originally gave just monetary support to nonprofit organizations and endeavors before branching out into creating its own signature community projects.

To honor that tradition, the league offers Community Assistance Grants. Registered nonprofit organizations in Crosby, Floyd, Garza, Hale, Hockley, Lamb, Lubbock, Lynn, and Terry counties may apply for up to $5,000 in grants. The league awards grants in both the fall and spring.

The league’s Community Impact Council reviews the applications and looks to the merits of each and how they pertain to the judging criteria.

No agency will be considered for funding if Community Assistance Grant funds have been received in the twelve (12) months prior to the submission deadline. 

Funding requests for a Community Assistance Grant:

  1. May be submitted at any time during the year.
  2. Will be assigned to committee researchers who will serve as liaisons to the requesting body.
  3. Will be reviewed and awarded as indicated below in the deadline section. An individual application may be reviewed at a different time if the request is deemed an emergency situation by the Community Impact Council.
  4. Will be judged on the individual merits of the project as they pertain to our stated criteria.

The addition of this vehicle to our traditional methods of funding has enhanced our ability to serve the community. We hope that you will continue to find it beneficial. Applications received after scheduled deadlines will be reviewed for eligibility during the next grant review cycle.

Fall 2019 Deadline

Applications for the Fall 2019 cycle must be received by October 11, 2019. The Spring Community Assistance Grant monies will be awarded on or before November 15, 2019.
