CAPCOG assists cities and counties in applying for Economic Development Administration (EDA), Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) and Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) funds. It works on various aspects of the grant application process depending on a community’s needs to include identifying grant opportunities, assisting with grant writing, coordinated site visits, and researching and organizing data to support applications.
CAPCOG is TDA certified to administer Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) programs funded under Texas Department of Agriculture. CDBG programs have the objective to develop viable communities by providing decent housing and suitable living environments and expanding economic opportunities principally for persons of low- to moderate-income.
CAPCOG also provides technical assistance for local governments seeking EDA Public Works Program grants that strive to increase regional economic opportunities. The grant program supplies funds to communities to revitalize, expand or upgrade their physical infrastructure to attract new industry; encourage business expansion; diversify local economies; and generate or retain long-term, private sector jobs. It also can be used for acquisition or development of land and infrastructure investments needed to establish or expand industrial or commercial enterprises.
Local governments can find other grant opportunities involving transportation and economic development infrastructure through the following state and federal institutions.
