The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $637,000 to Faith in Texas for general support.

This grant is intended to support Faith in Texas’ work to build grassroots support for criminal justice reform among members of white evangelical, black, and Hispanic faith communities in Texas, especially in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex. This work aims to support efforts to pass strong criminal justice reform and to build infrastructure and momentum for future reforms. Texas has the largest incarcerated population of any state in the U.S.1
