Disability and Rehabilitation Research Projects (DRRP) Program: Traumatic Brain Injury Model System (TBIMS) Centers Collaborative Research Project
The purpose of NIDILRR's Disability and Rehabilitation Research Projects (DRRP) is to plan and conduct research and dissemination and utilization activities to develop knowledge, methods, procedures, and rehabilitation technology that maximize the full inclusion and integration into society, employment, independent living, family/caregiver support, and economic and social self-sufficiency of individuals with disabilities, especially individuals with the greatest support needs, and to improve the effectiveness of services authorized under the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended (Rehabilitation Act). The purpose of this particular DRRP is to improve the lives of individuals with TBI through a multi-site collaborative research project on a topic(s) related to rehabilitation following TBI. The project will leverage the capacities of the TBIMS Centers Program and contribute to the advancement of evidence-based rehabilitation interventions. Applications must include a proposed research collaboration between a minimum number of three of the currently-funded NIDILRR TBI Model Systems Centers. NIDILRR plans to make one grant under this opportunity in FY 2023. The grant will have a 60-month project period, with five 12-month budget periods.
