Description: The purpose of NIDILRR’s DRRPs, which are funded through the Disability and Rehabilitation Research Projects and Centers Program, is to improve the effectiveness of services authorized under the Rehabilitation Act by generating new knowledge or developing methods, procedures, and rehabilitation technologies that advance a wide range of independent living and employment outcomes for individuals with disabilities, especially individuals with the most significant disabilities. Under this priority, one DRRP grant will be awarded to serve as the NIDILRR American Disabilities Act (ADA) Research Collaborative. The DRRP must include the active collaboration of at least three NIDILRR-funded ADA National Network Regional Centers. The DRRP must conduct research that generates knowledge about ADA implementation and compliance. The DRRP must conduct research in one or more areas of the ADA. These areas may include but are not limited to research on specific titles of the ADA, research on ADA issues in specific industries, or research on ADA issues that are relevant to individuals with specific types of disabling conditions.
