Quarterly Program Performance Report (QPPR)

The Quarterly Program Performance Report (QPPR) is the required quarterly report that grantees with a potential project period of more than one year must submit to TCDD to report completed work and progress toward achieving the goals and objectives outlined in their project’s work plan. In each QPPR, grantees report project activities that occurred during the reporting period. Some grantees may have fewer than three months of activities to report in a given quarter if their grants started after the beginning of the reporting period or concluded before the end of the reporting period.

Beginning in the 2024 fiscal year — which runs from Oct. 1, 2023, to Sept. 30, 2024 — grantees will use unique project-specific survey links to complete QPPRs. Grantees will receive email invitations from Qualtrics with their project-specific survey links. Please contact your TCDD grant coordinator with any questions. 

Grantees must submit QPPRs using the following reporting cycle:

Fiscal Quarter
Reporting Period
QPPR Due Date
Quarter 1
Oct. 1 to Dec. 31
Jan. 15
Quarter 2
Jan. 1 to March 31

Quarter 3

Quarter 4

We understand the challenge of adapting to a new process while managing other aspects of your grant, so we’ve created new information and training resources, including these three documents:

Additionally, we hosted a webinar to share an overview of the QPPR changes and answer any questions you might have. You can view a recording of the webinar on our YouTube channel. 

Grant Continuation Application

Continuation funding is an extension or renewal of existing project funding for one or more additional budget periods that would otherwise expire. Organizations awarded TCDD funding must apply for continuation funding each year. Continuation proposals are generally due about three months before the end of the grant year. Beginning in the 2024 fiscal year — which runs from Oct. 1, 2023, to Sept. 30, 2024 — grantees will use unique project-specific survey links to complete their continuation applications. Your TCDD grant coordinator can provide additional guidance. 

The 2024 Continuation Workbook (Zip file, 94 KB) allows you to preview the questions in the continuation application.

Advocacy Activity & Satisfaction Surveys

Advocacy activity and satisfaction surveys help us learn more about people with DD and families who participate in grant-related activities. They also help us track outcomes and learn more about how we can continue supporting Texans with DD and their families.

Beginning in the 2024 fiscal year — which runs from Oct. 1, 2023, to Sept. 30, 2024 — grantees will use unique project-specific survey links to submit advocacy activity and satisfaction surveys. Your TCDD grant coordinator will provide information on how to access and share survey links.
