Grants of up to $77,500 to Texas nonprofits, for-profits, government agencies, IHEs, faith-based institutions, and professional schools to hire and mentor a fellow who will specialize in developmental disabilities advocacy. Funding is intended to increase the number of professionals with the knowledge, skills, and experience necessary to engage in disability-related policy activities.
The TCDD Policy Fellows Program is tailored to provide exceptional learning and professional development opportunities for people who are ready to be leaders in a government agency or nonprofit organization. Each Fellowship includes four partners: the Advising Entity (grantee), a Mentor, the Fellow, and TCDD.
Through the program, emerging policy professionals receive training and mentoring that will help them effectively develop, implement, and evaluate the disability policies of the future. The program also provides an opportunity for longtime professionals to share their expertise and historical knowledge with the new professionals. TCDD will assist Fellows to conduct activities and build projects based on their interests, skills, and other factors. Such projects could include but are not limited to: developing one-pagers and fact sheets on policy issues, coordinating public testimony to be given to a legislative committee, and attending meetings with key decisionmakers.
At a minimum, the Fellow could be responsible for the following:
