Grants to USA nonprofit and for-profit organizations, agencies, tribal governments, and IHEs for research projects on the integration and inclusion of individuals with disabilities. Funding is intended for research activities that address issues such as family support, independent living, and social and economic self-sufficiency. Emphasis is placed on individuals with severe disabilities.
The purpose of the Field Initiated (FI) Projects program is 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. Another purpose of the FI Projects program is to improve the effectiveness of services authorized under the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
In carrying out a research activity under a FI Projects research grant, a grantee must identify one or more hypotheses or research questions and, based on the hypotheses or research questions identified, perform an intensive, systematic study directed toward producing (1) new scientific knowledge or (2) better understanding of the subject, problem studied, or body of knowledge.
Applicants should consult NIDRR's Long-Range Plan for Fiscal Years 2018-2023 when preparing an application. The Plan is organized around the following outcome domains: (1) community living and participation; (2) health and function; and (3) employment. Applicants for FI projects must specify in their abstract and project narrative which major outcome domain their proposed project will focus on.
FIP research applicants must define the stage or stages of research that they propose to conduct. These stages - exploration and discovery, intervention development, intervention efficacy, and scale-up evaluation - are defined on Page 4 of the RFP in Attached Files, below.
