Request a Grant Writer

Grant to a USA nonprofit or for-profit organization, agency, IHE, or Native American tribal entity to improve employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several days to complete. The purpose of the program is to generate new knowledge about employer practices that effectively support hiring, retention, and advancement of employees with disabilities.

The purpose of the RRTCs, 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 topical areas as specified by NIDILRR. These activities are designed to benefit rehabilitation service providers, people with disabilities, family members, policymakers, and other research stakeholders. 

The RRTC must contribute to improving the employment outcomes of people with disabilities by:

  • Conducting research toward effective employer practices for hiring, retention and advancement of employees with disabilities
  • Conducting research toward continued development of valid and reliable measures of employee- and employer-level outcomes of employer practices for hiring, retention, and advancement of people with disabilities.
  • Demonstrating, in its original application, that people from racial and ethnic minority backgrounds will be included in study samples in sufficient numbers to generate knowledge and products that are relevant to the racial and ethnic diversity of the population of people with disabilities being studied.
  • Identifying and involving key stakeholders in the research and research planning activities to maximize the relevance and usefulness of the research products being developed. Stakeholders must include, but are not limited to, a diverse group of people with disabilities, vocational rehabilitation agencies, employers, and relevant researchers in the field of disability employment research.
  • Serving as a national resource center related to employer practices for hiring, retention, and advancement of employees with disabilities. 
  • In conducting knowledge translation activities, the RRTC must collaborate with and seek technical assistance from the NIDILRR-funded Center on Knowledge Translation for Employment Research as needed and as appropriate.
