Funding Opportunity Description Purpose of Program: The purpose of the DRRP program is to improve the effectiveness of services authorized under the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, by developing methods, PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 procedures, and rehabilitation technologies that advance a wide range of independent living and employment outcomes for individuals with disabilities, especially individuals with the most severe disabilities. DRRPs carry out one or more of the following types of activities, as specified and defined in 34 CFR 350.13 through 350.19: Research, training, demonstration, development, dissemination, utilization, and technical assistance. An applicant for assistance under this program must demonstrate in its application how it will address, in whole or in part, the needs of individuals with disabilities from minority backgrounds (34 CFR 350.40(a)). The approaches an applicant may take to meet this requirement are found in 34 CFR 350.40(b). Additional information on the DRRP program can be found at: http:// www.ed.gov/rschstat/research/pubs/resprogram.html#DRRP. Priorities: NIDRR has established two priorities for this competition. The General DRRP Requirements priority is from the notice of final priorities for the Disability and Rehabilitation Research Projects and Centers Program, published in the Federal Register on April 28, 2006 (71 FR 25472). The Technology Access in Resource-Limited Environments priority is from the notice of final priorities for the Disability and Rehabilitation Research Projects and Centers Program, published in the Federal Register on February 1, 2008 (73 FR 6132). Note: On February 1, 2008, we also published a notice in the Federal Register (73 FR 6162) inviting applications for a number of competitions, including one using the Technology Access in Resource-Limited Environments priority. None of the applications we received for this priority were successful. On June 12, 2008, we published another notice in the Federal Register (73 FR 33420) inviting applications for the Technology Access in ResourceLimited Environments priority and, once again, none of the applications we received for this priority were successful. Consequently, due to this lack of quality applications, NIDRR is again recompeting this priority. NIDRR is seeking applications that address all elements of the priority and that propose appropriate, quality research methodologies. Accordingly, through this notice, we are inviting applications for another competition using the Technology Access in Resource-Limited Environments priority. Absolute Priorities: For FY 2009, these priorities are absolute priorities. Under 34 CFR 75.105(c)(3) we consider only applications that meet these priorities. E:\FR\FM\23MRN1.SGM 23MRN1
