Request a Grant Writer

Cooperative agreement to a USA IHE, agency, or for-profit, nonprofit, or tribal organization to create a resource center to conduct research regarding disparities in employment among people with disabilities who are from underserved populations. Required registrations must be completed prior to applying. The center should also provide relevant trainings.

The Administrator of the Administration for Community Living establishes a priority for a Rehabilitation Research and Training Center (RRTC) to conduct rigorous research toward new knowledge of, and reduction of disparities in employment outcomes among people with disabilities whose identities intersect with those of other historically underserved populations. The RRTC must explore and provide detailed information about employment outcome disparities within its defined target population of people with disabilities, measured across a subpopulation or subpopulations defined by race, ethnicity, LGBTQ+ status, poverty status, or other underserved communities described in Section 2 of Executive Order 13985.

New knowledge generated by this Center must ultimately be used toward development and implementation of evidence-based policies, practices, systems-change initiatives or interventions for reducing disparities in employment outcomes among the heterogeneous population of people with disabilities. The RRTC must serve as a National Resource Center in the employment domain to provide research-based training, technical assistance, and dissemination of informational materials to people with disabilities, service providers, and other relevant stakeholders.

As a National Resource Center in the employment domain, the RRTC must provide guidance and technical assistance to other disability and rehabilitation researchers – toward a field of research that is naturally inclusive of people with disabilities from traditionally underserved communities.
