Rendon said he enjoys working with grantees and providing support to help their projects succeed.

“I’m grateful to be a part of the TCDD team and work with the many grantees we have around the state,” said Rendon. “Our projects are making a difference in the lives of people with developmental disabilities in Texas and it’s an honor to be a part of TCDD’s mission.”
