Grants Resources

A Note from Henry...

Thank you for visiting my grants resource website! One of my most important concerns is to improve the economy and quality of life of South Texans.

For that reason, attracting more federal funds to our district and region has been a top priority during my tenure in Congress.

In these web pages, grant seekers have access to information that will help them develop federal proposals and link directly to federal grant opportunities.

I know that the federal grants process can be daunting. Therefore, I’m happy to provide this site to facilitate attracting funds for projects that make our region one of the best and most vibrant places to live in the nation.

If I can be of any additional help, please contact me click here and fill out the grant assistance request form or call my office directly.
