The purpose of the RRTC program is to achieve the goals of, and improve the effectiveness of, services authorized under the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, through well-designed research, training, technical assistance, and dissemination activities in important topical areas as specified by NIDILRR. This particular grant opportunity is for an RRTC to conduct research toward new knowledge of, and reduction of disparities in health and function outcomes among people with disabilities, particularly those in underserved areas/populations, as defined by the Executive Order On Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities Through the Federal Government. The RRTC must explore and provide detailed information about health and function outcome disparities within the population of people with disabilities, across subpopulations defined by race, ethnicity, LGBTQ+ status, or poverty status. New knowledge generated by this Center must ultimately be used toward development and implementation of evidence-based policies, practices, or interventions for achieving more equitable health and function outcomes among the heterogeneous population of people with disabilities. The RRTC must serve as a national resource center in this area, and must serve as a resource for the conduct of culturally competent disability and rehabilitation research in the health and function domain. The grant under this opportunity will have a 60-month project period with five 12-month budget periods.
