CPRIT Grant Management System
CPRIT utilizes an online grants management system that allows you to correspond with staff, manage budget information, submit reimbursement requests and required reports, manage grant contacts and review and accept contracts and contract amendments.
Rules and Statues
State law requires agencies to use a rulemaking process, which includes an opportunity for the public to comment on proposed rules and rule changes before the agency adopts the final rule. When CPRIT proposes a new administrative rule or a change to an existing administrative rule, it must do so through a rulemaking project. The rulemaking project, which CPRIT announces in the Texas Register, gives the public advance notice of the proposed rule so that interested persons may decide whether they wish to comment on the proposal.
Current Rulemaking Project
There is no current rulemaking project at this time.
Recently Adopted Rule Changes
At its November 15, 2023, meeting, the Oversight Committee approved the final adoption of recent changes to Section 701.25 that were initially presented at the August 16 meeting. The amendment expands CPRIT’s electronic signature policy to include Grant Applicants.
Beginning on December 7, 2023, Texas Administrative Code Chapter 701 will reflect the recent rule amendments, which are also available here (CPRIT Adopted Rule Chapter 701.25).

CPRIT is holding a redesigned and interactive webinar to help current grantees successfully navigate compliance and reporting requirements. The training includes an overview of common reporting errors, relevant administrative rule changes, interactive exercises, and a Q&A with staff.
CPRIT’s administrative rule § 703.22 requires all grantees to complete an annual compliance training by December 31 of each year. The Authorized Signing Official (ASO) and at least one other individual from each organization must attend the annual compliance training; however, we encourage all staff who use CPRIT’s grants management system to participate in this training.
PLEASE NOTE: Grantee compliance trainings are program specific. Organizations with grants across multiple programs should attend the training that pertains to the majority of their awards.
CPRIT staff participating in the webinar included representatives from the compliance department, program staff, operations staff, and the legal department.
