KVUE and TEGNA Foundation seek grant applications from local nonprofits

KVUE is accepting grant proposals from qualified Austin nonprofit organizations. The deadline is Aug. 29.

AUSTIN, Texas — KVUE is excited to announce that it is now accepting grant proposals from local nonprofit organizations that make Austin better. 

KVUE will be considering grants with a theme of COVID-19 relief and affordability. This includes nonprofit organizations offering rental assistance to prevent homelessness.

The application deadline is Saturday, Aug. 29.

KVUE is able to award grants in collaboration with the TEGNA Foundation, through its Community Grant program, which serves the greater good of its communities by supporting nonprofit activities where TEGNA does business. TEGNA Inc. is the parent company to KVUE, the ABC affiliate in Austin, Texas, dedicated to "making Austin better." 

Grant applications are submitted to KVUE using the application found on the TEGNA Foundation website. The average grant amount is in the $1,000 to $5,000 range.

Applicants will need to email KVUE their grant application form, the proposal, as well as the required attachments

KVUE reviews all submissions within one month after the deadline. Applicants will be notified whether they were selected around 90 to 120 days after deadlines. Due to the large volume of applications, KVUE will be unable to provide individual feedback. 

Please email submissions to HAdeni@kvue.comAny hard copy applications mailed to the station will not be accepted.

  • Individuals
  • Private foundations
  • Organizations not determined by the IRS to be a tax-exempt public charity under §501(c)(3)
  • Organizations classified by the IRS as 509(a)(3)
  • National or regional organizations unless their programs address specific local community needs
  • Programs or initiatives where the primary purpose is the promotion of religious doctrine or tenets
  • Elementary or secondary schools (except to provide special initiatives or programs not provided by regular school budgets)
  • Political action or legislative advocacy groups
  • Endowment funds
  • Multiple-year pledge campaigns
  • Medical or research organizations, including organizations funding single disease research
  • Organizations located in or benefiting nations other than the U.S. and its territories
  • Fraternal groups, athletic teams, bands, volunteer firefighters or similar groups
