The Texas Council for Developmental Disabilities is seeking applications from individuals who are interested in and qualified to review grant proposals. Qualified individuals must be over the age of 18 and must have personal or professional experience with disability issues or specific knowledge of the best practices in Council grants activities, or can represent groups of people who are typically underrepresented in Council activities.
TCDD requests Proposals to initiate new grant projects and uses independent review panels in the selection process. The Council seeks individuals with a wide range of expertise so that panels can be developed as needed for each RFP. Reviewers review and evaluate proposals, participate in a group review panel meeting, and develop group recommendations to the Council for funding.
Review panels generally are asked to review five to fifteen proposals. Reviewers are reimbursed for their time to review each proposal and to participate in the review panel meeting. Reviewers are also reimbursed for their travel expenses.
If you are interested in applying to be a reviewer, please complete the Review Panel Application Form.
