Request a Grant Writer

Grant to a USA organization, agency, for-profit organization, IHE, or tribe to facilitate the inclusion and integration of individuals with disabilities. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Under this particular DRRP priority, the Center must conduct research and related activities toward services, technologies, and other interventions to support parents with disabilities in their parenting roles.

The purpose of NIDILRR's Disability and Rehabilitation Research Projects (DRRP), which are funded through the Disability and Rehabilitation Research Projects and Centers Program, is to plan and conduct research, demonstration projects, training, and related activities, including international activities, to develop methods, procedures, and rehabilitation technology that maximize the full inclusion and integration into society, employment, independent living, family support, and economic and social self-sufficiency of individuals with disabilities, especially individuals with the most severe disabilities, and to improve the effectiveness of services authorized under the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended (Rehabilitation Act).

The Administrator of the Administration for Community Living establishes a priority for the funding of a National Research Center for Parents with Disabilities and their Families. This Disability and Rehabilitation Research Project (DRRP) will generate new knowledge about interventions that aim to support individuals with disabilities in their parenting roles and enhance the functioning of their families. For the purposes of this priority, “parents with disabilities” includes any individual with a disability who has primary caretaking responsibility for a child, including grandparents, adoptive parents, and legal guardians.

To contribute to this outcome, the DRRP must—

  1. Conduct research activities to identify or develop, and then test or evaluate one or more interventions that aim to support people with disabilities in their parenting roles and enhance the functioning of their families. Interventions must focus on supporting parents with disabilities in their roles as parents, and include an emphasis on family function. Interventions may include the following: policies, programs, products, practices, technologies or services;
  2. Focus its research on a specific stage of research, and clearly specify the stage in its application. If the DRRP is to conduct research that can be categorized under more than one stage, including research that progresses from one stage to another, those stages must be clearly specified. These stages: exploration and discovery, intervention development, intervention efficacy, and scale-up evaluation, are defined in this notice;
  3. Conduct knowledge translation activities (i.e., training, technical assistance, utilization, dissemination) in order to facilitate stakeholder use of and benefit from the knowledge that results from the DRRP’s research activities. Stakeholders include, but are not limited to: parents with disabilities; service providers; federal, state and local agencies (e.g., mental health systems, developmental disability systems, Medicaid, child welfare, and civil court entities); and Native American tribes;
  4. Include parents with disabilities and other relevant stakeholder groups in the activities described in paragraph 1 in order to maximize the relevance and usability of the policies, products, practices, services, interventions or other supports to be studied; and
  5.  Demonstrating, in its original application, that people from racial and ethnic minority backgrounds will be included in study samples in sufficient numbers to generate knowledge and products that are relevant to the racial and ethnic diversity of the population of parents with disabilities being studied. The DRRP must describe and justify, in its original application, the racial and ethnic distribution of parents with disabilities who will participate in the proposed research.

Note: A recent Government Accountability Office (GAO) report has raised considerable concerns about grantees and contractors charging the Federal government for additional meals outside of the standard allowance for travel subsistence known as per diem expenses. Executive Orders on Promoting Efficient Spending (E.O. 13589) and Delivering Efficient, Effective and Accountable Government (E.O. 13576) have been issued and instruct Federal agencies to promote efficient spending. Therefore, if meals are to be charged in your proposal, applicants should understand such costs must meet the following criteria outlined in the Executive Orders and HHS Grants Policy Statement:

Meals are generally unallowable except for the following:
- For subjects and patients under study (usually a research program);
- Where specifically approved as part of the project or program activity, e.g., in programs providing children’s services (e.g., Headstart);
- When an organization customarily provides meals to employees working beyond the normal workday, as a part of a formal compensation arrangement; and
- As part of a per diem or subsistence allowance provided in conjunction with allowable travel.
