Grant to a USA minority or tribal institution of higher education or college for research on improving post-secondary transition services for minority and ethnically diverse youth with significant disabilities. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete.
NIDILRR is seeking applications that address all elements of the priority and that propose appropriate, high-quality research methods. It is critical that proposals describe expected public benefits, especially benefits for individuals with disabilities, and propose projects that are designed to demonstrate outcomes that are consistent with the proposed goals.
The grant to be made under this opportunity will contribute to the evidence base upon which Centers for Independent Living (CILs) can provide effective services to help youth with significant disabilities– particularly for those from racial and ethnic minority backgrounds-- transition to post-secondary life. To help ensure the relevance of the research-based knowledge generated by this grant, CILs must be substantially involved in the design and implementation of all research, dissemination, training, and technical assistance activities. The DRRP may also include collaboration with other relevant stakeholders (e.g. vocational rehabilitation providers, school systems, community-based organizations). The target population for this grant’s activities is youth with significant disabilities from racial and ethnic minority backgrounds, age 14-24, who were eligible for individualized education programs and who have completed their secondary education or otherwise left school.
Under this priority, the DRRP must contribute to the following outcomes:
a. New knowledge and information about evidence-based CIL services for assisting youth with significant disabilities transition to post-secondary life – with a particular emphasis on serving youth CIL clients from racial and ethnic minority backgrounds.
b. New knowledge among CIL personnel about optimal, evidence-based approaches to
providing services to youth with significant disabilities – particularly those from racial or ethnic minority backgrounds –to support successful transition to post-secondary life. To contribute to this outcome, the DRRP must provide extensive dissemination, training, and technical assistance to CILs across the country – on services to assist youth with significant disabilities to successfully transition to postsecondary education or employment.
