Disability and Rehabilitation Research Projects (DRRP) Program: Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) National Network

Funding Agency:
Department of Health and Human Services

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 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, ten DRRPs, one within each of the 10 HHS regions, will be funded as part of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) National Network. Applicants must propose a program of services and activities that lead to improved understanding among individuals and entities, of their rights and responsibilities under the ADA. These services and activities include outreach, training, technical assistance, information dissemination, capacity building, and research.
