Disability and Rehabilitation Research Projects (DRRP) Program: Center on Knowledge Translation for Disability and Rehabilitation Research

Funding Agency:
Department of Health and Human Services

The Administrator of the Administration for Community Living establishes a priority for the funding of a Disability and Rehabilitation Research Project (DRRP) to serve as the Center on Knowledge Translation for Disability and Rehabilitation research (KTDRR Center). The purpose of the KTDRR Center is to promote the use of high-quality disability and rehabilitation research that is relevant to the needs of intended audiences by serving as the main knowledge translation (KT) resource for other NIDILRR grantees, including NIDILRR grantees that serve as KT centers (NIDILRR KT Centers). The KTDRR Center’s work will also be available to researchers who are not NIDILRR grantees and to the public.

Under this particular DRRP priority, applicants must propose activities to 1) add new knowledge in the area of knowledge translation, 2) promote the use of NIDILRR funded work that is relevant to the needs of intended audiences, and 3) support the knowledge translation endeavors of NIDILRR grantees and other NIDILRR-funded knowledge translation centers.

With this priority, NIDILRR proposes to fund a center on knowledge translation for disability and rehabilitation research (KTDRR Center). This Center will provide support to enable NIDILRR grantees to stay current with new advances in KT practices. These practices include, but are not limited to, methods for systematic reviews and research synthesis, emerging strategies and approaches for meaningful inclusion of people with disabilities and other stakeholders in the research process, and the use of social media and other popular media outlets as potentially effective dissemination channels for research-based information. In addition, the KTDRR Center will serve the important role of providing ongoing capacity building and technical assistance to support NIDILRR's grantees in their KT efforts.
