Rehabilitation Research and Training Center (RRTC) on Research and Capacity Building for Minority Entities

https://www.grants.gov/web/grants/view-opportunity.html?oppId=299254

Agency Name: Administration for Community Living
Description: The purpose of the RRTCs, which are funded through the Disability and Rehabilitation Research Projects and Centers Program, is to achieve the goals of, and improve the effectiveness of, services authorized under the Rehabilitation Act through well-designed research, training, technical assistance, and dissemination activities in important topical areas as specified by NIDILRR. These activities are designed to benefit rehabilitation service providers, individuals with disabilities, family members, policymakers and other research stakeholders. The purpose of this particular RRTC is to generate new knowledge about the experiences and outcomes of individuals with disabilities from racial and ethnic minority backgrounds that can be used as a foundation for developing interventions to improve those outcomes. Another purpose of the RRTC is to conduct research on the feasibility and potential effectiveness of methods and models to enhance disability and rehabilitation research capacity and infrastructure at minority-serving institutions. NIDILRR will accomplish this by limiting eligibility for this competition to minority entities and Indian tribes in a manner consistent with section 21(b)(2)(A) of the Act, which authorizes NIDILRR to make awards to minority entities and Indian tribes to carry out activities authorized under Title II of the Act. NIDILRR is especially interested in applications from individual minority entities that have historically been underrepresented in the federally-sponsored research arena.
