Underserved Communities Grant Program

Where we serve determines what we see, and what we see ultimately shapes our actions as a Society. 


The Underserved Communities Initiative began in 2021 leveraging data from the

Distressed Communities Index, which is a tool for measuring the comparative economic well-being of U.S. communities. To illuminate ground-level disparities across the Greater Houston areas, a grant funding program was launched in May 2022; this funding for Conferences is designated ONLY to zip code areas identified as "at-risk" or "distressed" with the intent to prevent the number of unhoused children, families and senior citizens living on the streets of Houston.
