Teams of three—made up of a prosecutor, law enforcement officer, and advocate—from rural, under-resourced counties in Texas are encouraged to apply. We ask that all Fellows plan, in good faith, to be at their current agency for at least two more years. Fellows are also required to secure the support of the head of their agency head.
Fellows are expected to actively participate in ICCR activities for a full year. The curriculum is flexible to accommodate a variety of schedules and workloads. At a minimum, fellows should ensure they have the time and capacity to commit to the following:
- Attend the Conference on Crimes Against Women in Dallas, Texas at the beginning and end of your Cohort year (registration, travel, and lodging costs are covered by ICCR).
- Actively work with team members to create your Coordinated Community Response, including completing your Best Practice Assessment and Collaborative Action Plan.
- Complete 80% of assignments. You can expect to spend an average of one hour per week on ICCR tasks.
- Complete bi-yearly surveys and interviews during and upon completion of ICCR for evaluation purposes.
Because we are targeting specific geographic clusters in Texas, we encourage you to apply EARLY! Note that your team’s application will not be considered complete until all team members have been identified and have submitted their portion of the application.
