BEAUMONT, TX —The Foundation for Southeast Texas announced today the recipients of the second round of grants from the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund. The fund will provide over $490,000 to 36 local nonprofit organizations in our tri-county region.

“This award marks a significant milestone on the road to recovery for Southeast Texas after our area was devastated by flooding. We want to thank everyone who applied for their interest and the critical work they are doing to benefit our community,” said Mellie Bevilacqua, executive director of the Foundation for Southeast Texas.

“The Rebuild Texas Fund partnership with the Foundation for Southeast Texas helps to get resources to small organizations in the Golden Triangle that are may get overlooked by large funds,” said Chris Hensman, program officer with the Rebuild Texas Fund. “We are grateful to be able to partner and amplify the efforts of FSETX to help recovery in the region.”

The awards are the second cycle of funding which is a collaboration between the Foundation for Southeast Texas and the Rebuild Texas Fund. These grants will provide to support nonprofit agencies in Hardin, Jefferson, and Orange counties. The first cycle of funding from the Foundation for Southeast Texas was awarded in December of 2017 and granted over $250,000 to local organizations.
