Grants available for disability-related projects

Two grants are available from the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitative Research (NIDILRR).

  • Field Initiated Projects Program (Research): In carrying out research, a grantee must identify one or more hypotheses or research questions and perform an intensive, systematic study toward producing new scientific knowledge or better understanding of the subject.
  • Field Initiated Projects Program (Development): In carrying out a development activity, a grantee must use knowledge and understanding gained from research to create materials, devices, systems, methods, measures, techniques, tools, prototypes, processes or intervention protocols that are beneficial to individuals with disabilities.

Both opportunities close Feb. 8.

NIDILRR is part of the Administration for Community Living and works to generate new knowledge and promote its use to improve the abilities of individuals with disabilities to perform activities in the community, and to expand society’s capacity to provide full opportunities and accommodations for people with disabilities.
