The City of El Paso Grants Administrative Division (GAD) enables City departments through a myriad of services including identifying potential funding sources through eCivis (a purchased grants search network that provides the most current information on available federal, state, local and foundation funding sources).  GAD facilitates support and oversight throughout the grant life cycle to include the following:


Community Outreach

GAD provides eCivis services to Community Based Organizations (CBO), not-for-profit organizations free of charge. Providing this service helps the City of El Paso increase revenues, bring needed programs and services, and stimulate the overall economy by providing more jobs through the CBO's. CBOs can apply to receive this service by signing a User Agreement with the Office of the Comptroller, GAD.


Identifying Your Needs

Before you or the GAD begin researching funding opportunities for your Department, identify the type of funding you need. The GAD will focus grant searches to identify funding opportunities specifically to meet your Department's needs.
