About the GDC
The Grant Development Center (GDC) provides grantsmanship education and health-related funding information for State of Texas residents. The GDC replaces the Funding Information Center (1990 to 2022). The GDC is part of the Department of State Health Services Office of Practice and Learning.
The Funding Information Center (FIC) was established in January 1990 to serve as a statewide clearinghouse for funding information on HIV/AIDS-related programs. As mandated by the 1989 Human Immunodeficiency Virus Services Act (Texas Health and Safety Code, Title 2, Chapter 85, Section § 85.013 and § 85.014), the FIC researched and disseminated HIV/AIDS-related funding information to the Texas public. The Texas Legislature removed Section § 85.013 from the FIC mandate in April 2015. The scope of FIC coverage then expanded to include almost all public health interests and many social service issues.
