Grants to USA nonprofit organizations, government agencies, IHEs, faith-based institutions and for-profits to research how people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) are affected by substance use disorder. Funding is intended for gathering statistical information relating to Texans, acquiring and reviewing local, state, and national data, and reporting on outcomes.

The purpose of this RFP is for a project to provide information that can be used in the future to ensure Texans with IDD who have substance use disorder can access the services and supports necessary so they can be fully included in their communities and exercise control over their own lives.

Through this project, the grantee will study and expand knowledge related to substance use disorder in people with IDD. The grantee will:

  • Gather statistical information related to Texans with IDD who have a substance use disorder, including opioids addiction;
  • Determine what resources exist related to the prevention and treatment of substance use disorders in people with IDD;
  • Determine the barriers and system gaps that prevent people with IDD from accessing services and supports; and
  • Identify and recommend what best practices are available to address barriers to the prevention and treatment of substance use disorders in people with IDD.

The grantee will provide TCDD with a report that:

  • Features comprehensive data – including prevalence rates and demographic data – related to Texans with IDD who have a substance use disorder (as available);
  • Lists and summarizes what prevention and treatment options exist;
  • Lists and summarizes barriers and systems gaps that prevent access to prevention and treatment services and supports;
  • Lists and summarizes the best practices related to prevention and treatment – including the most effective treatment components, as well as outcome data, when possible – available in Texas and other states; and
  • Includes the best practices the grantee recommends for implementation in Texas, including relevant details and the rationale for the recommendations.

The report could include text, charts, graphs, graphics, photos, etc. The report will be shared with decision-makers in state government and the legislature. The report and the research findings may provide the basis for future RFPs issued by TCDD. The report should be accessible for people with disabilities. All data and information acquired by the grantee will be shared with TCDD.
