Health and Safety Code §150900, which governs the TGI Fund, does not authorize expenditures for research-related activities and CDPH cannot issue grant awards to pay for research activities.
CDPH allows for advanced payments of grant funds in certain cases. Once grant announcements are made, CDPH staff will pursue permission to provide advance payment of up to 25% of the award’s annual budget on a case-by-case basis. Organizations will be required to submit invoices as specified in their grant agreement. Invoices will be submitted through an online portal where payment progress can be easily tracked. GHES staff will provide training and support to organizations in how to ensure timely invoicing and payment.
