credit:


high quality research, communication, and education on matters related to disability policy.

The DRC is an interdisciplinary extramural policy research program funded by the Social Security Administration (SSA) through a cooperative agreement.

In addition to research, the DRC will disseminate research results and train graduate students and junior faculty.

The expectation is that the DRC will foster more collaborative research across federal agencies as well as more collaboration among researchers in the federal government, academia, and research centers.

Another important expectation is that research results will help policymakers improve service delivery, enhance coordination of services across programs, build on complementarities across programs, eliminate duplication and waste, and advance cooperation across federal agencies that serve people with disabilities.
