Plan ahead! Make sure you have an account well before an application deadline! 

Accounts can be used to apply on behalf of Texas nonprofits, colleges/universities, and units of government, including schools, libraries, and municipalities. TCA does not provide grants to individuals or entities that do not have nonprofit/governmental designation.

Nonprofit organizations should email a copy of their IRS letter of determination to Any other type of organization or individual should email its/their name, title, and organization information to to initiate the account setup process.

If you are a college or university department we will want to talk to someone from the office that coordinates development/fundraising activities for the university (i.e., Office of Sponsored Projects or Office of Research & Development). Know that these accounts take a little longer to establish, so plan ahead.

Know that SAM-UEI numbers are required for all applicant organizations.
