DAAP offers grants in order to implement programs that have a direct or indirect impact on youth in underserved communities in the Greater Houston Area. Our funding priorities are as follows:

  • Early learning programs
  • Literacy programs
  • Academic programs that are designed to increase competencies in the areas of math, science, technology, leadership, service, and/or self-esteem
  • Artistic programs that provide exposure to artistic performances
  • Artistic programs designed to provide exposure to or raise awareness of different cultures
  • Programs that provide and/or enhance artistic instruction.
  • Non-youth programs – DAAP will consider grants that provide education and services to other demographics if there is an indirect benefit to the youth population

  1. The title of the program
