Proposals due Monday, April 15, 2024

ACL's National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) is announcing a new funding opportunity for a Rehabilitation Engineering Research Centers (RERC) program on information and communication technologies access.

The purpose of the RERC program is to improve the effectiveness of services authorized under the Rehabilitation Act by conducting advanced engineering research and development of innovative technologies designed to solve particular rehabilitation problems or remove environmental barriers.

The RERC on Information and Communication Technologies Access will conduct research and development toward innovative technologies and strategies that will make information and communication technologies optimally accessible and usable for people with disabilities.
