Texas State Park Resources

Looking for ways we can help you help the Texas State Parks? We offer two grant programs to individuals and organizatons looking to improve the Texas State Parks system.

TfSP Grants

Development Grants
Texans for State Parks (TfSP) seek to encourage the development and growth of Parks Partners who help protect and maintain our State Parks by offering Development Grants intended to help build and strengthen l volunteer groups that provide direct benefits for public use and enjoyment of individual Texas State Parks.

Pass-Through Grants
Some organizations wish to help a park of their choice but are required to make donations to non-profits rather than a state agency or within a specified time frame. Texans for State Parks has developed a process so that we may act as the fiscal agent for grants and gifts to parks and/or Friends Groups.
