Specialized Technical Assistance Services for NIDRR Grantees


The NCDDR offers specialized information about knowledge translation (KT), peer consultation, and technical assistance (TA) services for current NIDRR grantees at no charge. These services are designed to respond to NIDRR grantees' need for general or specific information about KT and its relation to high quality research. Technical assistance services are designed to help build the capacity of NIDRR grantees to negotiate the knowledge translation process, with a goal of increasing the inclusion of NIDRR-sponsored research in systematic reviews.

All current NIDRR-sponsored grantees are eligible to use NCDDR's specialized TA services.

Who provides the information, consultation, and TA services?

Responses to grantee requests will be provided by NCDDR staff and/or consultants with expertise in areas such as research methods, standards of evidence, measurement, research utilization, and development.

Is there a deadline for submitting a request?

These services are available to NIDRR grantees on an ongoing basis.
