Austin Foundation for Architecture - Grants


Our grants benefit communities across Central Texas.

The Foundation serves Central Texans through the wide-ranging activities our grants support, from the Contemporary Austin’s Rooftop Architecture & Design Film Series to the AIA’s Architecture in the Schools program.

Since the grant program’s inception in 2009, we have funded more than $100,000 in grants to individuals and groups representing private, public, and non-profit entities. Some grants focus on project-based initiatives. Others are designed to develop the voices and visibility of community leaders who advocate for a well-built environment. Common to every grant is the objective of enriching the quality of life and cultural experience in Central Texas.

We encourage anyone with an idea that will have a positive impact on the built environment in Central Texas to apply for a grant. Applications must be submitted by June 15 or December 15 of each calendar year.
