The Texas Capital Fund is designed to promote growth in rural non-entitlement areas, generally defined as cities with less than 50,000 residents or counties with less than 200,000 residents. Specifically, the Infrastructure Development Program funds may be used for construction and/or improvements of projects such as natural gas line and electric transmission services, or pre-treatment facilities. A minimum of 51% or more of all the jobs created or retained by the business must benefit persons who qualify as low or middle income.

The standard maximum award is $750,000 with two jumbo awards of $1,000,000 and one jumbo award of $1,500,000 offered each program year. The minimum award is $50,000.
