Grants to USA state and local governments, nonprofit organizations, for-profits, IHEs, Indian tribes, and tribal organizations for projects to assist individuals with disabilities. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended for research projects aimed at improving the health and function outcomes of individuals with disabilities.

In carrying out a research project under this program, a grantee must identify one or more hypotheses or research questions and, based on the hypotheses or research questions identified, perform an intensive, systematic study directed toward producing (1) new or full scientific knowledge or (2) understanding of the subject or problem studied.

Priority--DRRP on Health and Function of Individuals with Disabilities:

The Administrator of the Administration for Community Living establishes a priority for a Disability Rehabilitation Research Project (DRRP) on Health and Function of Individuals with Disabilities. The DRRP must contribute to the outcome of maximizing the health and function outcomes of individuals with disabilities.

(1) To contribute to this outcome, the DRRP must--

(a) Conduct research in one or more of the following priority areas, focusing on individuals with disabilities as a group or on individuals in specific disability or demographic subpopulations of individuals with disabilities:

(i) Technology to improve health and function outcomes of individuals with disabilities.

(ii) Individual and environmental factors associated with improved health and function outcomes of individuals with disabilities.

(iii) Interventions that are designed to contribute to improved heath and function outcomes of individuals with disabilities. Interventions include any strategy, practice, program, policy, or tool that, when implemented as intended, contributes to improvements in outcomes of individuals with disabilities.

(iv) Effects of government policies and programs on health and function outcomes of individuals with disabilities.

(v) Practices and policies that contribute to improved health and function outcomes of individuals with disabilities.

(b) Focus its research on a specific stage of research. If the DRRP is to conduct research that can be categorized under more than one stage, including research that progresses from one stage to another, those stages must be clearly specified and justified. These stages: exploration and discovery, intervention development, intervention efficacy, and scale-up evaluation, are defined in this funding opportunity announcement. Applicants must justify the need and rationale for research at the proposed stage or stages and describe fully an appropriate methodology or methodologies for the proposed research.

(c) Conduct knowledge translation activities (i.e., utilization, dissemination) in order to facilitate stakeholder (e.g., individuals with disabilities, employers, policymakers, practitioners) use of the knowledge, interventions, programs, technologies, or products that resulted from the research activities conducted under paragraph (1)(a) of this priority.

(d) Involve key stakeholder groups in the activities conducted under paragraph (1)(a) of this priority in order to maximize the relevance and usability of the research products to be developed under this priority.
