Grant Delivery Meeting

On the effective date, or within 30 days from the effective date, the Project Manager will schedule a grant delivery meeting with the subgrantee to review and discuss the terms of the agreement. This includes all types of grants (General, STEP Yearlong, Click It or Ticket Mobilization and Impaired Driving Mobilization).

The grant delivery meeting should be designed to meet the requirements of the subgrantee and TxDOT. For example, a subgrantee entering into its first agreement with TxDOT will require a thorough orientation of the agenda items identified later in this section. If the subgrantee has had many grants with TxDOT and has demonstrated good overall project performance, the delivery meeting can be abbreviated.

NOTE: The grant delivery meeting can be conducted in-person or virtually at the discretion of the TxDOT Project Manager.
