NIDILRR Seeking Input to Guide Strategic Planning
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.
“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.”
