Congressman Joe Barton.

ARLINGTON — The Joe Barton Family Foundation announced that it will be accepting grant applications from non-profit organizations through November 30, 2015.

The Joe Barton Family Foundation provides substantial financial support to select charitable organizations within the 6th Congressional District of Texas. This support enables organizations to achieve aggressive goals that would have been otherwise unattainable. The intent of these large scale projects is to dramatically improve the quality of life for the affected individuals, leading to better lives and stronger Texas communities.

Previous Foundation grant recipients include the Boys and Girls Club of Navarro County, Meals-on-Wheels of Johnson and Ellis Counties, and the Arlington Life Shelter in Tarrant County. The most recent organization to receive grant assistance has been the Hope Clinic in Ellis County. With assistance from the Joe Barton Family Foundation, the Hope Clinic will soon open its doors to a newly renovated facility in Ennis. The Hope Clinic provides medical care and support to the uninsured and underinsured.

Rep. Barton stated, "The Joe Barton Family Foundation is pleased to support a hometown project within the 6th district. We have seen the wonderful results that can happen when a community comes together to achieve a goal. I am looking forward to the Foundation selecting its next project to sponsor."
