The Texas Council for Developmental Disabilities (TCDD) is seeking applications from individuals who are interested in serving on panels that review grant proposals.
TCDD’s mission is to create change so that all people with disabilities are fully included in their communities and exercise control over their own lives. To achieve this mission, TCDD provides grant funding for projects throughout the state of Texas. When TCDD makes grant funds available, we issue a Request for Proposals (RFP). Qualified proposals are reviewed by an independent grant review panel. Members of the review panel evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of proposals, participate in a group review panel meeting via teleconference, and ultimately develop group recommendations to the Council about funding.
Grant review panels generally consist of three to five people. Review panel members may include:
- individuals who have disabilities and/or have family members with disabilities;
- professionals in the disability field; and/or
- others who have expertise around a certain topic.
TCDD strives to assemble grant review panels that are as diverse as possible so that multiple points of view are considered in the discussion. Individuals who have experience in reviewing documents is a plus. Grant review panel members receive compensation for reviewing proposals, participating in meetings, and travel and per diem, if necessary.
