Grants.gov provides a common website for federal agencies to post discretionary funding opportunities and for grantees to find and apply to them. Using the Grants.gov system makes it faster, easier and more cost effective for grant applicants to electronically interact with federal grant-making agencies. It also provides the following key benefits, among many others, to the grant community.

Texas Egrants

The Office of the Governor (OOG) solicits grant applications as 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.

Texas Parks and Wildlife Department acts as a silent partner in hundreds of communities across the state through its grant, assistance, education, and outreach programs. From the largest metroplex to the smallest rural community these programs help to build new parks, conserve natural resources, preserve historical sites, provide access to water bodies, develop educational programs for youth, and much more.

Texas Department of Agriculture
