Making grants from a non-profit organization in Tarrant County can be a complex process, but with the right resources and processes in place, it can be made simpler. To ensure that grantors are willing to provide funding, it is essential to have a well-structured grant management system. This includes having a financial management system with good functionality for tracking grants, expenses, and reporting. Most donors require regular reports to demonstrate responsibility and transparency in the work that the organization does. The county gave priority to projects that could provide counterpart funding through grants or funding from the organizations themselves.
Larger organizations such as United Way of Tarrant County and The YMCA received most of the funding. To accurately bill grantors, organizations need an efficient process for capturing direct and indirect costs. Several nonprofit organizations across the county will soon be receiving six- and seven-figure checks from Tarrant County, after the commissioners court allocated a portion of the federal money to projects in Fort Worth and elsewhere. This is an unprecedented opportunity to invest in Tarrant County nonprofit organizations. The TCC OGDC team is available to help you find funding sources, plan your project design, and write competitive grant applications for approval and submission on behalf of Tarrant County College. United Way of Tarrant County is one of two United Ways companies in the country that is also the Local Agency on Aging.
