The Office of the Governor (OOG) may solicit applications for grants in the form of a Request for Applications (RFA) through the Secretary of State’s Texas Register. RFA notices serve to inform potential applicants of available funding opportunities. In addition to an RFA, OOG may solicit applications for grants in the form of a Request for Proposals (RFP). The chart below lists each funding opportunity along with the method used to solicit applications and the deadline for submitting applications through eGrants to OOG.

The U.S. Congress has not finalized the federal appropriations for federal fiscal year 2016. All awards are subject to the availability of appropriated funds and any modifications or additional requirements that may be imposed by law.
