Grant to a USA state, tribal, or county government, IHE, tribal organization, school district, nonprofit, or for-profit organization for research to improve the self-sufficiency of people with disabilities. Applicants are advised that required registrations must be completed prior to applying. Priority will be given to research projects that assist individuals with the most severe disabilities.
The purpose of NIDILRR's Disability and Rehabilitation Research Projects (DRRP), which are funded through the Disability and Rehabilitation Research Projects and Centers Program, is to plan and conduct research, demonstration projects, training, and related activities, including international activities, to develop methods, procedures, and rehabilitation technology that maximize the full inclusion and integration into society, employment, independent living, family support, and economic and social self-sufficiency of individuals with disabilities, especially individuals with the most severe disabilities, and to improve the effectiveness of services authorized under the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended (Rehabilitation Act).
Under this particular DRRP priority, applicants must propose a development project that is aimed at improving the employment outcomes of people with disabilities. In carrying out a development project under this program, a grantee must use knowledge and understanding gained from research to create models, methods, tools, applications, and devices beneficial to the target population, including design and development of prototypes and processes.
Please note that this will be the Funding Opportunity for field-initiated DRRP development projects in the employment domain. NIDILRR plans to make two field-initiated DRRP awards in the employment domain. NIDILRR's field-initiated DRRP awards in the employment domain may include research projects, development projects, or both, depending on the ranking of applications provided by the peer review panel.
The DRRP must contribute to the outcome of maximizing employment outcomes of people with disabilities. To contribute to this outcome, development DRRPs must:
