Specifically, this notice announces four priorities for RRTCs and three priorities for RERCs.

Through the implementation of the Plan, NIDRR seeks to: (1) Improve the quality and utility of disability and rehabilitation research; (2) foster an exchange of expertise, information, and training to facilitate the advancement of knowledge and understanding of the PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 37191 unique needs of traditionally underserved populations; (3) determine best strategies and programs to improve rehabilitation outcomes for underserved populations; (4) identify research gaps; (5) identify mechanisms of integrating research and practice; and (6) disseminate findings. This notice announces priorities that NIDRR intends to use for RRTC and RERC competitions in FY 2009 and possibly later years. However, nothing precludes NIDRR from publishing additional priorities, if needed. Furthermore, NIDRR is under no obligation to make an award for each of these priorities. The decision to make an award will be based on the quality of applications received and available funding. Purpose of Program: The purpose of 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 selfsufficiency 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. Program Authority: 29 U.S.C. 762(g), 764(a), 764(b)(2), and 764(b)(3). Applicable Program Regulations: 34 CFR part 350. We published a notice of proposed priorities (NPP) for this program in the Federal Register on May 7, 2009 (74 FR 21338). That notice contained background information and our reasons for proposing the particular priorities. This information may be useful for applicants in preparing their applications. There are several significant differences between the NPP and this NFP, as discussed in the Analysis of Comments and Changes section elsewhere in this notice. Public Comment: In response to our invitation in the NPP, 80 parties submitted comments on the proposed priorities. We discuss substantive issues under the priorities to which they pertain. Generally, we do not address technical and other minor changes or suggested changes the law does not authorize us to make under the applicable statutory authority. In addition, we do not address general comments that raised E:\FR\FM\28JYN1.SGM 28JYN1
