Meadows Foundation invests in the TxHPF’s work at critical moment.

(DALLAS, Texas, Oct. 14, 2021) — The Texas Hispanic Policy Foundation has secured a $75,000 matching grant from the Meadows Foundation in another sign of the nonprofit organization’s growing acclaim as a leading voice on issues affecting Hispanic Texans.

The grant is the second major investment that TxHPF has announced in the past month. The TxHPF announced in late September that it had secured a nearly $400,000 grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to study the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the educational development of Hispanic public school students in Texas.

The two grants are the largest investment in the TxHPF since the organization was founded in 2019.

“We could not be more grateful that the highly respected Meadows Foundation is making a substantial investment in our work,” said TxHPF Chairman and CEO Jason Villalba. “This support provides our organization with even more momentum as we continue our research, which is aimed at increasing understanding of the diverse beliefs and attitudes of Hispanic Texans.”

The TxHPF collaborates with the Baker Institute for Public Policy at Rice University to conduct research and collect data. The organization is using its research to build a “Rosetta Stone” for understanding the Texas Hispanic population.

“Some of the most recognized and respected foundations in this country are investing in our work, which speaks to its importance and relevance,” Villalba said. “We are grateful for their confidence and for the opportunity to research this growing, critical population of Texans.”
