This region is special because of the local individuals and groups that put in the time, energy, and passion to make a difference. We created the JUSTIN Community Grants program to support this great work. Since 2013, through the JUSTIN Community Grants program, we have been supporting local organizations that strive to make this community a better place to live, work, and raise families.

For our 2021 school and community grant period, JUSTIN will award up to $250,000 to local schools and non-profits in our community.

The 2021-2022 grant application has closed.
