The Texoma Council of Governments (TCOG) coordinates the grant application review and priority setting process for a variety of grants provided by the Criminal Justice Division (CJD), Office of the Governor.
To assist interested applicants in learning about the various funding sources and the requirements for grant submission, a workshop will be held January 25, 2008 at TCOG. The workshop is for those who have never applied to CJD as well as those who have previous experience with the CJD grant application process.
The workshop is scheduled for 9:00 a.m. January 25 in the Eisenhower Room (First Floor) at the Texoma Council of Governments, 1117 Gallagher Drive, Sherman, Texas. The session will last no more than two hours. Participation in the grant application workshop is mandatory for applicants.
