Small Business Grants for Women in Texas

Looking for grants for your woman-owned business in Texas? We’ll give away 3 this month.

If you’ve done a Google search for “women’s business grants in Texas,” you know how hard it is to find grant money for your woman-owned business.  The government isn’t likely going to help you, and their process is overcomplicated.  Other sites offering grant money send you down an endless rabbit hole.

But here’s where the good news begins.

Here’s Your Chance To Get A $10,000 Small Business Grant This Month.

For starters —  yes, WomensNet offers THREE business grants to women in Texas (as well as all across the United States). They are our monthly Amber Grants for Women and it’s simple for you to apply.  (We only ask two questions. Tell us about your business or business idea… and what would you do with the $10,000 grant?)

Every month, we give away THREE $10,000 grants to women business owners.  And at the end of the year, we give away three more $25,000 grants to our monthly winners.  So if you’re willing to take a couple minutes to tell us about your small or start-up business, you could be awarded $35,000 in grant money by the end of this year!

You’ve discovered a group of women who will help you find grants, loans and tons of resources for Texas women business owners like you.  Yes, you’ll still have to get your hands dirty and do the heavy lifting! But if you’re willing to put in the time to pursue your business dream, we’d love to point you in the right direction.

Does WomensNet Offer Amber Grants to Women In My State?

Yes!! We've been offering business resources and grants to women in all 50 states (and Canada) since 1998. We have three different $10,000 Amber Grant winners EVERY month... Plus at the end of the year, each Amber Grant winner for that year is eligible for an additional $25,000 grant!

How Does It Work?

Submit your application. Our WomensNet judges review every application. Then we announce the three $10,000 Amber Grant winners the following month by the 23rd. At the end of the year, we award THREE more $25,000 grants -- chosen from our previous monthly grant winners for this year. That means you have the opportunity to receive $35,000 from WomensNet by filling out one two-question grant application.

How Do I Apply?

Simple. By telling us your story. There are no lengthy, complicated documents to complete. Just answer two questions about your business. But hurry—applications are due by the end of the month for all three of this month's $10,000 Amber Grant opportunities.

Six steps you should take when looking for a business grant:

1. Analyze your organization's needs. Make sure you have a solid understanding of the:
  • Problem or need you want to address
  • Audience that will benefit from your product or service
  • Kind and amount of support you need
  • Resources and commitment your group brings to the project
  • Potential and prospective partners in the community
2. Research various types of foundations. Learn the operational differences between:
  • Corporate foundations
  • Civic foundations
  • Private foundations
3. Look for funding matches. Identify funders who:
  • Are able and likely to fund projects in your geographic area
  • Share a similar core mission or goals
  • Have already supported similar ventures or projects
4. Compile a list of prospects. Group them in two ways:
  • By Geographic Location (city, state, region)
  • By field of interest or program subject
5. Review and refine your list. Eliminate prospects that DON’T FUND:
  • In your state
  • Your type of organization
  • Your subject
  • The type of support you need
  • Your size project
6. Select the most appropriate funding prospects. Research them in detail:
  • Contact them directly to request annual reports and other publications
  • Search print and online media to identify projects that received grants in the past
  • Ask former grant recipients for advice and why they felt they were successful over other applicants
