Agenda Item No. 10
Presenter: Ted Hollingsworth
Consideration by the Council of the adoption of a schedule for evaluation of TFRLCP applications, including the deadlines for grant application submission and the expected dates of Council decisions on grant awards.
January 28, 2016
As noted in Council Item #7, in order to meet the deadline for grant matching consideration by the NRCS, TPWD will need to open the TFRLCP application period immediately after the January 28, 2016 Council meeting, and close the application period in mid-February. The application ranking committee will need to rank the applications and their conclusions and recommendations will need to be presented to the Council in early-March in order that Letters of Intent for selected projects can be forwarded to NRCS in time for consideration.
Staff has developed a possible schedule of events related to the 2016 grant cycle and attached it hereto as Exhibit A.
“The Texas Farm and Ranch Lands Conservation Council adopts the 2016 TFRLP grant schedule attached as Exhibit A.”
