About Capital IDEA

Capital IDEA is a nonprofit, community-based organization that launched in 1998. Capital IDEA emerged from the shared goals of the local business community and Austin Interfaith (AI). AI is a multi-issue, multi-ethnic, nonpartisan social justice organization made up of congregations, schools, unions, associations, and nonprofits that work together to develop the leadership to address issues that affect the well-being of families in the community.

Over almost two decades of service, Capital IDEA has grown with funding from the City of Austin and Travis County, as well as a growing number of corporate and philanthropic partners. The US Department of Labor, the US Department of Health and Human Services, and the Texas Legislature have funded programming. A 2015 Workforce Excellence Award from the Texas Economic Development Council acknowledged the success of the workforce initiatives partnership between Capital IDEA and the City of Austin Economic Development Department.
