TCDD Grant

This grant from TCDD: “Empowerment & Support For Persons with IDD & Their Caregivers” is not only available in the San Antonio area, but all over Texas. It was 1st granted to the IDD services department in May of 2019 and was offered to LIDDA’s across the state.  It was meant to provide Support & Empowerment to older adults with IDD (50+) and their caregivers.  Their hope was to identify gaps in the community to support a person aging in the IDD community and create a self-stainable model that would continue past the 5-year grant.  It has been found that the program is of much greater benefit to individuals ages 18 years and up. Some of the things the grant provides are classes and training for both individuals with IDD and their caregivers, as well as the “Project Search” program which pairs people 18+ in age in a program partnership with a business in the community to learn apprenticeship skills for a job at that business.  Often after the apprenticeship program, many of the individuals are offered jobs at those businesses.

Meet some of the individuals this grant has helped to achieve some of their “person-centered” goals

Chris Nikic:

This program has also spread to other states. Here is another young man who has had help from such a program. At age 21, he became the first person with Down syndrome to finish an Ironman triathlon. For this accomplishment, Nikic was awarded the Jimmy V Award for Perseverance as part of the 2021 ESPY
