Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA state and local governments, nonprofit organizations, for-profits, IHEs, Indian tribes, and tribal organizations to assist individuals with disabilities. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended for projects that promote the implementation of findings that were gained from the funding source's research and development projects.

A critical part of the mission of the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) is promoting the effective use of new findings and products from NIDILRR-sponsored research and development activities to improve the outcomes of individuals with disabilities. 

Priority:

The Administrator of the Administration for Community Living proposes a priority for Disability and Rehabilitation Research Project (DRRP) grants. These DRRP grants will serve as Projects for Translating the Findings and Products of Disability and Rehabilitation Research and Development into Practice. Under this priority, grantees must promote the use or adoption of findings or products from NIDILRR-sponsored research or development projects. Grantees under this priority must also document and disseminate the knowledge translation methods that they used to facilitate the adoption or use of findings or products by stakeholders.

Each knowledge translation grant under this priority must be conducted in partnership with relevant stakeholders. These stakeholders must be actively engaged in the planning, implementation, and evaluation of all knowledge translation grant activities. Grantees under this priority must contribute to the following outcomes:

  1. Use or adoption of NIDILRR-sponsored findings or products by relevant stakeholders;
  2. Changes in policy, practice, or systems that are intended to improve the lives of individuals with disabilities as a result of the use or adoption of NIDILRR-sponsored findings or products; and
  3. Increased understanding of promising practices for knowledge translation in disability, independent living, and rehabilitation research.

An applicant should consult the NIDILRR Long-Range Plan for Fiscal Years 2018-2023 when preparing its application. The Plan is organized around the following outcome domains: (1) community living and participation; (2) health and function; and (3) employment. Applicants for these DRRP projects must specify in their abstract and project narrative which of these outcome domains their proposed project will focus on. Although applicants may propose projects that address more than one domain, they should select the primary domain addressed in their proposed project.

You are strongly encouraged to submit your application a minimum of 3- 5 days prior to the application closing date.

Cost Sharing/Matching Requirement: No

The Grants.gov registration process can take several days. If your organization is not currently registered, please begin this process immediately.

All applicants must have a DUNS number and be registered with the System for Award Management (SAM) and maintain an active SAM registration until the application process is complete, and, should a grant be made, throughout the life of the award. Applicants should allot sufficient time prior to the application deadline to finalize a new, or renew an existing registration. This action should allow you time to resolve any issues that may arise. Failure to comply with these requirements may result in your inability to submit your application or receive an award. Maintain documentation (with dates) of your efforts to register or renew at least two weeks before the deadline.
