Grants to USA nonprofit and for-profit agencies and organizations, IHEs, tribes and tribal organizations, small businesses, and state governments for research development projects on assistive technologies for individuals with disabilities. Required registrations may take several weeks to complete. NIDILRR's three awards under this grant competition may include research projects, development projects, or both, depending on the ranking of applications provided by the peer review panel.
The Administrator of the Administration for Community Living (ACL) establishes a priority for Disability and Rehabilitation Research Projects (DRRP) on assistive technology solutions for daily living. Under this DRRP priority, applicants must propose a development project that is aimed at maintaining or improving the independence, community living, and quality of life outcomes of people with disabilities--with a particular emphasis on seniors with disabilities--through assistive technology. In carrying out a development project under this program, an applicant 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.
Assistive technology development topics under this priority may include but are not limited to: human-computer interfaces; automation and/or robotics technologies; home-based technologies; recreational technologies; health service delivery technologies; and mobility, cognitive, sensory, and communication aids.
