Student Financial Aid Programs

The Office of Student Financial Aid Programs (SFAP) supports institutions of higher education with the administration of state financial aid programs. We are committed to expanding financial aid knowledge through excellence in customer service, communication, and training for Texas students, borrowers, and institutions of higher education.


ALERT: Please note that the additional FY 2022 funding (under Strategy B.1.10) that was communicated in the final allocations for each grant program is being added in the grant payment portal (GPP) in the coming months to reflect the full allocation amount. Institutions should continue to submit funds requests, as needed, and do not need to wait for these additions.
