National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR)
NIDRR's home and name has changed. On July 22, 2014, President Obama signed the Workforce Innovation Opportunity Act (WIOA). WIOA was effective immediately.
One provision of WIOA transferred the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR) from the Department of Education to the Administration for Community Living (ACL) in the Department of Health and Human Services.
As a Feburary 09, 2015, all NIDILRR employees became employees of ACL but we are still physically located at 550 12th Street SW Washington, DC 20202. This arrangement will remain in effect until further notice.
In addition, NIDRR's name was changed to the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR).
