Grant Process Guidelines Organizations seeking financial assistance must meet the following criteria:

1. The organization must be designated as a 501(c)(3) organization by the IRS. The foundation does not make grants to families or individuals.

2. The requested project funds should be designated for large scale capital projects (e.g. a new building) rather than operating funds.

3. The organization must commit to raising funds equal to the amount of the grant from the foundation.

4. Preference will be given to projects located within Texas’s 6th Congressional District. Please click here for a map, or here to find out if your organization is located in the 6th Congressional District.

Please note: The Joe Barton Family Foundation is accepting grant proposals at this time.
