"Nothing is more important than the safety and security of our communities, and the State of Texas continues to bolster programs and services that help keep Texans safe," said Governor Abbott. "This $308 million in grant funding for public safety initiatives will provide even more support to organizations and agencies that work tirelessly to protect our communities, advocate for victims of crime, secure justice, and more."

Entities interested in seeking funds to support their public safety initiatives during the next grant cycle (FY 2023) should reach out to their local COG to learn about region specific timelines and requirements. The PSO posts funding opportunity announcements containing program purposes, a description of allowable activities, timelines, and other requirements on the Office of the Governor's eGrants website.
