The State Grants Team provides technical assistance, statewide grants training and federal liaison services to Texas state agencies, all subdivisions of government, and non-profit organizations. The Team’s legislative mandate also requires management of the Texas Review and Comment System (TRACS) and administration of the Uniform Grants Management Standards.

The Governor's Office State Grants Team provides grant proposal writing training to individuals from state agencies, political subdivisions of the state, and non-profits on a cost-sharing basis. The training is designed to familiarize novice and intermediate-level proposal writers with various aspects of proposal writing: funding research (federal, state, and private), how to plan projects that meet agency goals and constituent needs, and how to craft successful grant proposals.

The training format includes lecture and group activities.
