Three New Funding Opportunities for Rehabilitation Research and Training Centers Addressing Equity from NIDILRR

April 29, 2022

The National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) at ACL has funding opportunities for three Rehabilitation Research and Training Centers (RRTCs) to address equity issues.



The purpose of the RRTC program, which are funded through the Disability and Rehabilitation Research Projects and Centers Program , is to achieve the goals of, and improve the effectiveness of, services authorized under the Rehabilitation Act through well-designed research, training, technical assistance, and dissemination activities in important topic areas as specified by NIDILRR. These activities are designed to benefit rehabilitation service providers, individuals with disabilities, family members, and other stakeholders.

 




RRTC Equity Center in the Community Living and Participation Domain: This particular grant opportunity is for an RRTC to conduct research toward new knowledge of, and reduction of disparities in community living outcomes among people with disabilities, particularly those in underserved areas/populations, as defined by the Executive Order On Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities Through the Federal Government. The RRTC must explore and provide detailed information about community living outcome disparities within the population of people with disabilities, across subpopulations defined by race, ethnicity, LGBTQ+ status, or poverty status. New knowledge generated by this Center must ultimately be used toward development and implementation of evidence-based policies, practices, or interventions for achieving more equitable community living outcomes among the heterogeneous population of people with disabilities. The RRTC must serve as a national resource center in this area, and must serve as a resource for the conduct of culturally competent disability and rehabilitation research in the community living and participation domain.
