COVID-19: Guidance for CPRIT Grantees and Grant Applicants

Governor Abbott declared a State of Disaster for Texas on March 13 related to the COVID-19 pandemic. As COVID-19 precautionary measures and illness hinder business activities, CPRIT is committed to supporting our grant applicants and grantees. We will provide guidance on this webpage as information becomes available.

If a grantee has a question about COVID-19’s effect on an individual grant project that CPRIT has not addressed here, the grantee should contact their program manager. CPRIT has also created a dedicated email ( to receive grantee questions.

CPRIT will consider new COVID-19 developments in line with current cost principles, state law, and CPRIT rules. We are committed to working with grant applicants and grantees to support cancer research and prevention projects and provide necessary flexibility.
