Program Announcement No. SSA-ORES-00-1
Disability Research Institute Request for Applications
date was: January 12, 2000 It is essential that the nation invest in research designed
to examine the disability programs and ensure that these programs are designed effectively
to improve the lives of disabled Americans. The Social Security Administration plans to
establish a Disability Research Institute (DRI). This institute would help fill the need
for more extensive research in the disability area for policy makers around the country.
The DRI is an important initiative on the part of SSA's Office of Policy to strengthen the
Agency's research capacity since it became independent in 1995. As authorized under
section 1110 of the Social Security Act, SSA announces the solicitation of applications
for a cooperative agreement to create a DRI in order to inform the public and policymakers
about disability policy alternatives and their consequences.
