3E's Grant Programs

The Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) is authorized by §12.0027 of the Texas Agriculture Code to administer the 3E's Grant Program to promote better health and nutrition programs and prevent obesity among children in this state. The objective of the program is to increase awareness of the importance of good nutrition, especially for children, and to encourage children's health and well-being through Education, Exercise and Eating right. TDA’s 3E's consists of two grant program categories:

Establishing the 3E's Grant Program (E3E) - a program that incentivizes the creation of new nutrition education programs in any childcare institution or community organization.

Expanding the 3E's Grant Program (X3E) - a program that rewards the expansion of existing nutrition education programs in public schools only.
