Grant Announcement: Increasing Latino Student Success through Collective Impact in the Rio Grande Valley

RGV FOCUS will align local systems to better support the transition of students from public education to higher education to the workforce with a $1,250,000 grant from Greater Texas Foundation to Communities Foundation of Texas/Educate Texas. RGV FOCUS is a collective impact organization that coordinates the region’s school districts, higher education institutions, philanthropic entities, workforce and community leaders as they work together to achieve systems change that can benefit the region’s 90% Hispanic and 86% economically disadvantaged student population. Grant funds will ensure the organization has the capacity required to continue monitoring students’ progress along the cradle-to-career educational pathway and aligning strategies and resources that ensure students are postsecondary ready, attain a postsecondary credential, and ultimately pursue a meaningful career in the RGV and beyond.
