Getting Started – Contract Funds

The ETP process starts with either registering a new user or signing into an existing account and then submitting an Application within ETP’s online contract management system known as Cal-E-Force.  Once an application is submitted it is reviewed by a first-in first-out process within ETPs funding priorities and limitations and will be assigned to an ETP analyst to assist with further processes.  Registration & entry to the Cal-E-Force system can be found on the Apply For Funds Page

More resources are available on this website and can be found under the Getting Started Links towards the bottom of this page. An Interactive Orientation, provided by ETP’s Economic Development Unit (EDU), is also available for reservation online, users may sign up for the orientation and view open upcoming dates by following the link at the end of this page.
