Disability and Rehabilitation Research Projects (DRRP) Program: Independent Living Transition Services for Youth and Young Adults with Significant Disabilities from Minority Backgrounds: The purpose of the Disability and Rehabilitation Research Projects (DRRP), funded through the Disability and Rehabilitation Research Projects and Centers Program, is to plan and conduct research, demonstration projects, training, and related activities, including international activities, to develop methods, procedures, and rehabilitation technology that maximize the full inclusion and integration into society, employment, independent living, family support, and economic and social self-sufficiency of individuals with disabilities, especially individuals with the most severe disabilities, and to improve the effectiveness of services authorized under the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended (Rehabilitation Act). This particular DRRP priority is a joint-funding collaboration between the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) and the Independent Living Administration (ILA), both within the Administration for Community Living (ACL). The DRRP grant to be made under this priority will conduct research to generate evidence-based practices for services provided by Centers for Independent Living (CILs) to facilitate the transition of youth with significant disabilities from racial and ethnic minority backgrounds who were eligible for individualized education programs and who have completed their secondary education or otherwise left school. Applicants under this priority must propose to conduct research to: (1) systematically identify promising practices for facilitating the transition of youth and young adults with significant disabilities from minority backgrounds, (2) develop at least two manualized transition interventions for youth and young adults with significant disabilities from minority backgrounds, and (3) assess the feasibility and efficacy of the transition interventions for youth and young adults with significant disabilities from minority backgrounds. Applicants must also include a plan of dissemination, training, and technical assistance services to CILs, regarding services to facilitate the transition of youth and young adults with significant disabilities from racial and ethnic minority backgrounds 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 the proposal, including all research, development, dissemination, training, and technical assistance activities.
