Applications for the following TxCDBG grant cycles are due next week, May 3rd, 2023!
All applications must be submitted through the TDA-GO online grant management system. If you have prepared application materials and have NOT yet begun entering the information into the system, we encourage you to begin immediately. TDA staff is available to assist with any issues that you encounter with user accounts, data concerns, error checks, digital signatories, etc. through 5:00pm on Wednesday May 3.
To be eligible for consideration, applications must document the citizen participation as described in the Application Guide. These requirements include:
TxCDBG applications and grant agreements require a resolution from the local governing body authorizing specific individuals and/or positions to take action on behalf of the community. TDA provided a sample resolution that can be used for all open grants in TDA-GO. This resolution must be adopted prior to the application due date. Only those named in the resolution will be permitted to take action in TDAGO on behalf of the community.
TxCDBG applicants must demonstrate an active registration in the System for Award Management (SAM) to be eligible for funding. Current policy requires evidence of an active registration to be submitted with the application to be considered complete. To extend additional flexibility, TDA is willing to consider additional time for communities currently in the SAM registration/renewal process if the application includes:
Each application for TxCDBG funding must include clear documentation of the persons served by the project for each benefit area. This documentation must be substantially complete at the time the application is submitted and include a clear explanation of how each Benefit Area is determined. For the 2023 applications, TDA will consider allowing Applicants to submit clarifying information that also includes minor corrections for beneficiary data that would be improved with technical assistance from TDA.
