About the NIDRR SBIR Program
In the summer of 2014, Congress passed the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). Under this legislation, the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR) and all of its grant programs are transferring to the Administration for Community Living (ACL) in the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). NIDRR is in the process of transferring its grants and programs—including its SBIR program—to ACL/HHS.
Applicant information for NIDRR's SBIR Phase I and Phase II is presented below.
NIDRR’s SBIR Program Manager is Brian Bard. Please contact Brian with any questions at 202-245-7345, or Brian.Bard@ed.gov.
