Section 21 Program

Purpose

The Section 21 program, mandated by the Rehabilitation Act, requires NIDILRR to set aside one percent of its annual appropriations to address traditionally underserved populations. It focuses on research capacity building for minority entities, such as Historically Black Colleges and Universities and institutions, serving primarily Hispanic, Asian, and American Indian or Alaska Native students, and non-minority entities with an interest in improving understanding about the needs and outcomes of individuals with disabilities from minority populations.
