Grant to a Texas nonprofit organization for advocacy skills training and leadership development programs benefitting individuals with disabilities, their family members, and community members. Priority will be given to applicants in underserved or rural areas of the state.
Funding is available for one local self-advocacy organization to provide leadership and advocacy skills training. Self-advocates will take the lead and conduct the training, but training participants may include people with disabilities, students with developmental disabilities (DD), people living in institutions, family members of people with disabilities, and other community members. People who participate in the training will become active in creating change in their communities.

The Leadership and Advocacy Training by a Local Self-Advocacy Organization project will have self-advocates in leadership positions for project development, coordination, curriculum choices, and implementation. Self-advocates will provide leadership and advocacy training to people with disabilities, family members of people with disabilities, and other community members.
Project staff will determine how the curriculum will be used and how training will be provided. Training must include:

The funding amount for this RFA is open-ended based on activities proposed, but funding for typical TCDD projects that address leadership and advocacy range from $25,000 to $150,000 per year.
The maximum project duration is five years.
Organizations that are awarded funding must apply for continuation funding each year. Continuation funding will not exceed the maximum per-year funding amount stated in the RFA.
Continuation funding is not automatic and TCDD may choose not to award continuation grants. Continuation proposals are generally due approximately three months before the end of the grant year.
