iconHistory

The Funding Information Center (FIC) was established in January 1990 to serve as a statewide clearinghouse for information on funding to support HIV/AIDS related programs. As mandated by the 1989 Human Immunodeficiency Virus Services Act (Texas Health and Safety Code, Title 2, Chapter 85, Section § 85.013 and § 85.014), the FIC researched and disseminated HIV/AIDS-related funding information to the Texas public. The FIC is part of the Department of State Health Services Center for Health Statistics.

The scope of FIC coverage has since expanded to include almost all public health interests and many social service issues. While HIV/AIDS is still a top priority, the Funding Information Center has recognized the need to provide funding information on all aspects of public health.

Since 1990, the FIC has helped Texas organizations secure at least $230.6 million in public and private funding to support public health-related programs and services.
