Grant recipients to fill out Sections 1, 2, 3 and have your bank fill out Section 4 of the attached PDF form. To ensure the confidentiality of this information, send a copy to the TCA offices by either fax or mail. DO NOT E-MAIL this information!
Note: You will receive a correspondence documenting the electronic transfer with date and amount so you know when you have been paid.
If your organization is UNABLE to establish a qualifying account at a financial institution, fill out Sections 1,2 & 5 and send TCA a copy. TCA is then required to send that information along to the Comptroller for verification before check payments can be processed. We will do our best to expedite this process, but ask you to recognize that this may delay payment processing time.
