Transit Empowerment Fund Microgrants are designed to provide additional opportunities to meet the TEF mission of enhancing access to transportation for low-income, transit-dependent individuals in the Austin area. All Microgrants must focus on transportation for low-income (200% of poverty guidelines or below) individuals. They are for a maximum of $1,000 and can be provided in either passes or a grant. They can be used to support an event or short-term innovative project that advances the TEF mission and assists individuals to access education, employment, healthcare, or social services. The Board will review Microgrant applications quarterly: January, April, June, and October.
