Who We Are

It’s Time Texas is a statewide 501(c)(3) non-profit organization bringing people, communities, and organizations together to take action that support health for all, now and for generations to come. At It’s Time Texas, we believe that every Texan should have an equal opportunity to live a long and healthy life, but we recognize that social and environmental factors have long prevented that vision from becoming a reality.

Through the generosity of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas’s Healthy Kids, Healthy Families grant, It’s Time Texas will award multiple sub-grants of funding up to $50,000 per award, to community-based organizations who are able to mobilize and rapidly deploy resources where they are needed most within four designated areas of Texas. Funding will support the delivery of effective programs and services that improve critical health outcomes and address root causes of health disparities, remove barriers to access, and advance community conditions for health and wellness that improve resilience in the face of COVID-19. We are excited to listen and learn more about your group and how your project addresses the inequities seen in your community.
