2012-2013 RLIS Applicant Designation and Certification
On Monday, September 17, 2012, the 2012-2013 RLIS Applicant Designation and Certification (ADC) form for the 2012-2013 RLIS Grant Application opened in eGrants. The 2012-2013 RLIS ADC form initiates the application process for the 2012-2013 RLIS Grant Application. Eligible applicants use the ADC form to identify how they will apply in the grant application for the funding source. The information that is submitted on this form is considered to be binding. Applicants are advised to complete the process of obtaining local board approval, as appropriate, and ensure accuracy before submitting the form. The RLIS ADC form, once certified and submitted by eligible applicants, will activate the 2012-2013 RLIS Grant Application.

Eligible applicants must apply through the eGrants system. To apply, applicants must have appropriate Texas Education Agency Secure Environment (TEASE) access.
