The Austin Project (TAP) is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization launched in 1991 by Walt and Elspeth Rostow out of the LBJ School for Public Affairs. Then Austin Mayor, Bruce Todd, several faith-based organizations, community activists, neighborhood associations and business leaders joined the effort to create an organization that would act as a catalyst to align community efforts and to scale initiatives that lift up systems and shared community efforts to address the chronic gap in access and equity among Austin’s poor and minority populations.
TAP’s focus is on the importance of Family Stabilization as a key to student success,Parental Engagement as vital to school success, and Neighborhood Participation in schools as a means of revitalizing Community. Please visit our Current Initiatives and Past Initiatives pages for more specific details about our projects.
