Smart Jobs Fund This fund assists employers by upgrading work-force skills in emerging technologies. Employers design exactly the program they feel their employees need.

Texas Capital Fund - Infrastructure Grant Program Grants to improve public facilities in rural communities including roads, utilities, and rail spurs to facilitate the expansion of an industry. Grants range from $5,000 to $500,000 not exceeding 50% of the total project cost. Texas Capital Fund - Real Estate Development Program Another source of funds to help business or industry acquire or improve real estate. The focus of this fund is to provide assistance to enterprises that will provide jobs for primarily low- or moderate-income employees. Grants range from $50,000 to $500,000, not exceeding 50% of total project cost. Texas Manufacturing Assistance Centers (TMAC) TMAC provides field engineers to work with small manufacturers to implement technologies and techniques that improve manufacturers’ ability to more efficiently produce high-quality products. Services include on-site assessments, process evaluation, inventory management, product development, vendor referrals, technology integration. Texas Enterprise Zone Program The Texas Enterprise Zone Program is designed to encourage permanent job creation and retention, as well as capital investment in economically distressed areas of Texas. The program has proven a viable economic development strategy for communities by providing state and local incentives and the local incentives to new or expanding businesses. Businesses located in enterprise zones may be eligible for local and/or state benefits. State incentives include a refund of state sales and use taxes, franchise tax reductions, and state administered program priority. Additional state benefits are available to qualified businesses designated as enterprise projects, which are nominated by communities or counties on a competitive basis. Texas Capital Access Program The Texas Capital Access Fund Program was established by the 75th Legislature in September of 1997. The program is designed to increase the availability of financing for businesses and non-profit organizations that face barriers in accessing capital. It encourages financial institutions to finance businesses that do not meet the requirements of conventional loans, lack sufficient collateral to qualify for conventional financing, or do not meet other business requirements. Eligible borrowers can be any small businesses with under 100 employees, a medium-size business with employment of over 100 but fewer than 500, or a non-profit corporation. The proceeds may be used for working capital of the purchase, construction, or lease of capital assets, which include land, buildings, and equipment.
