Earlier this year, AUTMHQ secured funds from the City of Austin's Grant for Technology Opportunities Program (GTOP) Core grant. This grant was awarded to organizations helping to propel tech equity in the community. Thank you District 1 Council Member Natasha Harper-Madison for this honor and recognition of AUTMHQ's work during last week's city proclamation ceremony. Sincerely,
The AUTMHQ Team
