Public Policy


United Ways of Texas advocates on behalf of its members for a variety of important issues impacting both Texas communities and nonprofits.  With two registered lobbyists on staff and a lobbying consultant, UWT is able to advocate for systematic change that ultimately brings dollars and other needed resources back into Texas communites.

UWT represents the interests of our members and the statewide United Way system, most recently during the 83rd Regular and Special Called Sessions of the Texas Legislature.  To learn more about UWT's public policy work, please contact Adrianna Cuéllar Rojas at  

The 2013 UWT Legislative Agenda was set and approved by the Board of Directors prior to the start of the 83rd Regular Session.  View the long version and the abbreviated version here.
