BIAA HOME : NIDILRR Seeking Input to Guide Strategic Planning

NIDILRR Seeking Input to Guide Strategic Planning

18-Oct-2016 Administration for Community Living’s National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) is seeking comments and will be hosting several listening sessions across the country to help inform future funding priorities and strategic direction. 

Mandated by Congress to develop a long-range plan every five years, NIDILRR is committed to incorporating input from key stakeholders—especially people with disabilities.
“We fund some of the most talented and innovative researchers and technology developers in the country,” said NIDILRR Director, John Tschida. “We need to make sure that this research and development focuses on improving the everyday lives of people with disabilities.” 

Visit here for more details and registration to attend or listen to the meetings.

Attendees should come prepared to answer the following questions:
What issues or barriers make it challenging for you to be an active member of your community?
What improvements would make your daily life better?
What has changed, for better or worse, in the last five years that has affected your ability to achieve your goals?
NIDILRR will also accept written comments via email to Please submit your comments by December 12, 2016.

Part of the Administration for Community Living, NIDILRR’s mission is to generate new knowledge and promote its effective use to improve the abilities of people with disabilities to perform activities of their choice in the community and to expand society’s capacity to provide full opportunities and accommodations for its citizens with disabilities.
