POSITION OVERVIEW: Per a Governor’s Executive Order, the Texas Education Agency is the designated state agency for TCDD, and as such, provides administrative support to hire and select the best talent to support TCDD’s mission.

TCDD is governed by a 27-member governor appointed Council.
TCDD is responsible for awarding and administering over $5 million in federal funds to organizations that assist people with developmental disabilities to achieve their potential for independence, productivity, and integration into their communities by awarding grant funds to subrecipients who develop a comprehensive system of service and supports in Texas.
TCDD is seeking a Grant Coordinator who will ensure that TCDD grants are monitored for compliance in accordance with state and federal laws, and agency policy and procedures. The Grant Coordinator will be responsible for monitoring multiple grant projects and will communicate extensively with TCDD grantees to resolve compliance issues and provide technical assistance as required.
