Join Our Team
We are hiring two Public Policy Analysts to support TCDD’s public policy and legislative advocacy priorities.
While we adapt to the changes related to the COVID-19 situation, we will continue to educate decision-makers, provide information you can use, and share important advocacy opportunities.
Our new webpage includes information about how you could be impacted by COVID-19, plain language resources, and how to stay up-to-date with legislative activities. This page will be updated as new information and resources become available.

The Texas Council for Developmental Disabilities (TCDD) issued a Request for Applications (RFA) for Sexual Assault Response and Prevention projects (RFA 2020-09). Through these grants, organizations will develop projects that will help reduce the number of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) who are victims of sexual assault. The deadline to apply is June 15, 2020.
A new resource provides guidance and tips to help medical workers successfully communicate with people with disabilities during a COVID-19 test. The resource is available in English and Spanish.
The summary includes provisions in the COVID-19 relief legislation that will assist the disability community, as well as measures that disability advocates would like to see in future bills.
The Texas Council for Developmental Disabilities is committed to creating change so that each individual is able to be fully included in their own communities and exercise control over their own lives.
