Stipends

TCDD has funding available for multiple stipends to support disability-related events, speakers, and translation services in Texas. We offer these stipends to enhance opportunities for people with developmental disabilities (DD) and their families to exercise choice and control in their lives, and promote independence, productivity, and community inclusion.

TCDD has recently updated stipend funding requirements. Beginning April 1, 2023, stipend applications must be received by TCDD at least 60 days in advance of the event. Stipend applications for events that take place before April 1, 2023, may be submitted 30 days in advance to TCDD.

Conference and Event Stipends

Texas organizations that conduct qualified in-state professional or informational conferences, workshops, or legislative advocacy skills training events can apply for grants to help more individuals with developmental disabilities and their family members to attend. To learn more and apply, see Conference and Event Stipends.

Disability-Related Speaker Stipends

TCDD has funds available to support presentations on disability-related issues at conferences in Texas. Funds for these grants are made available to TCDD by the U.S. Administration for Community Living (ACL). See Disability-Related Speaker Stipends to learn more and apply

Translation and Interpretation Stipends

TCDD has funds available to support translation and interpretation services to reduce language barriers to access services and supports in Texas. Funds for these grants are also made available by ACL. To learn more and apply, see Translation and Interpretation Stipends.
