October 24, 2022


ACL's National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) is announcing two 2022 Disability and Rehabilitation Research Projects (DRRP) Program grantees. 

The purpose of the DRRP 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.

DRRP Grant Recipients:
