Project Objective
TCDD contracted with A Circle of Ten, Inc., to work with selected disability leadership and advocacy grantees to increase their ability to operate training programs after TCDD funding ends. Half-day trainings and three-day workshops are planned in Austin, Houston and Edom (west of Tyler) to help participants leverage grants and local funding and to sustain programs by using other resources and collaboration. Ten to 17 grantees will receive the training, as well as individualized support before and after workshops. The training is also open to other nonprofits to expand their abilities, resources and partnerships. Small, tailored classes of 15-21 individuals focus on grant writing, collaboration and capacity building.

State Plan Goal 5
Demonstrate how to prevent unnecessary admissions to State Supported Living Centers (SSLC) by supporting community organizations in at least 1 HHS Region to increase their capacity to provide community-based services that support people with developmental disabilities to improve and maintain their health and to have access as needed to necessary healthcare, behavior supports, and/or respite, by 9/30/2016.
