The Texas Council for Developmental Disabilities (TCDD) is pleased to announce the selection of Robert Garcia as TCDD Grants and Contract Compliance Specialist. Before joining TCDD, Garcia was an accountant and he has experience in financial analysis, purchasing, and customer service. He earned a bachelor’s degree in finance from Texas State University and is currently working to become a Certified Public Accountant. Garcia’s educational background and work history make him a great fit for his new role at TCDD where he will work closely with TCDD’s grantees to monitor the performance of their projects and provide technical assistance when necessary.
“I’m very excited for this opportunity to ensure that TCDD’s grant-funded projects are having an impact in the lives of people with developmental disabilities in Texas,” said Garcia. “In the short time I’ve been at TCDD, I’ve already seen how our innovative projects are helping more people with disabilities exercise control over their own lives.”
Garcia’s hometown is Dripping Springs, Texas. He joined the TCDD team on November 15, 2017.
