    The purpose of the program is to plan and conduct research, demonstration projects, training, and related activities to improve the lives of individuals with disabilities. These projects are quite varied, though all are aimed at fulfilling NIDRR's overarching goals of inclusion, integration, employment, and self-sufficiency for people with disabilities.

    Projects may support research relating to the development of methods, procedures, and devices to assist in the provision of rehabilitation services, particularly to persons with severe disabilities. Among the projects supported by this program are the Traumatic Brain Injury Model System (TBIMS), the Traumatic Burn Injury Model Systems, Outreach to Minority Institutions, research on spinal cord injury, and Knowledge Translation.

    There are two absolute priorities under this program. They are:

    1. General Disability Rehabilitation Research Projects (DRRP) Requirements
    2. Traumatic Brain Injury Model Systems Centers
