Community Project Requests

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.  Join our mailing list to stay up-to-date on our Community Program. 

The 2021-2022 Community Program grantees will receive trained JLD volunteers and/or funding during the 2022-2023  JLD fiscal year (June-May).

Our grant application cycle for our Community Grants, Provisional Projects and Transfer Projects typically opens in March of each year. We offer a Grants Workshop in late February or early March each year.

The application process for Community Project Requests is now closed. Please check back for updates. 


  • Projects must further the JLD mission and respond to recognized community needs.
  • Grants are available to nonprofit agencies in Dallas County that meet the established criteria.
  • Agencies requesting JLD funding must also include a volunteer placement component to their request that will provide a minimum of 60 hours of service opportunities per volunteer. There is a 10 volunteer minimum.


The request process from application to acceptance of approved projects takes approximately one year.
