Each year, the Junior League of Dallas through the Research & Development Committee identifies approximately 40 projects that will comprise the majority of the JLD Community Program for the following year.

The 2020-2021 Community Grant Application Process is now closed.

Our grant application cycle for our Community Grants (R&D), Provisional Projects and Transfer Projects typically opens in March of each year.

Please click here for our mailing list. We offer a Grants Workshop in late February or early March each year.
