Grants to USA nonprofit and for-profit organizations, agencies, tribal governments, and IHEs to develop technology and procedures that help promote self-sufficiency for individuals with disabilities. Special emphasis is placed on individuals with severe disabilities. Funding is intended to maximize full inclusion and integration into society, employment, independent living, family support, and economic and social self-sufficiency. Additionally, the goal is to improve the effectiveness of services authorized under the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
In carrying out a development activity under an FI Projects development grant, a grantee must use knowledge and understanding gained from research to create materials, devices, systems, methods, measures, techniques, tools, prototypes, processes, or intervention protocols, that are beneficial to the target population.
An applicant should consult NIDRR’s Long-Range Plan for Fiscal Years 2018-2023 when preparing its 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 of NIDILRR’s major outcome domains their proposed project will focus on. Although applicants may propose projects that address more than one domain, they should select the primary domain addressed in their proposed project.
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.
