Request a Grant Writer

Grant to a USA nonprofit or for-profit agency or organization, IHE, state, tribe, or tribal organization for research projects to develop and implement disease management programs for individuals with traumatic brain injury. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete.

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).

Under this particular DRRP priority, the objective is to improve long-term health outcomes of people with traumatic brain injury (TBI). The grantee will conduct research at the intervention development stage, to directly inform and shape the development of chronic disease management approaches for meeting the complex and varied health care needs of people with TBI.

Priority-- DRRP on Chronic Disease Management for People with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI):

The Administrator of the Administration for Community Living establishes a priority for a Disability and Rehabilitation Research Project (DRRP) on Chronic Disease Management for People with traumatic brain injury (TBI). The grant to be made under this opportunity will contribute to the evidence base upon which people with TBI and their health care providers can employ effective chronic disease management practices. The grantee will conduct research at the intervention-development stage to develop a chronic disease management model for meeting the complex and varied health care needs of people with TBI. Please refer to NIDILRR’s stages of research, which are defined in the funding opportunity announcement.

The primary output of this grant will be foundational knowledge toward the development, testing, and implementation of a chronic disease management model for people with TBI and their health care providers. The long-term outcomes of the grant, not to be achieved by this grant alone, are decreased mortality and improved health, function, and quality of life for persons with TBI through prevention and/or reduction in the rates of new onset disease and disability after TBI, and through the provision of rehabilitation services and community-based supports as needed throughout the lifespan. 

For outcomes related to this priority and stages of research, see pages 4-5 of the Funding Opportunity Announcement document in Attached Files below.
