There is a new grant opportunity from the Department of Education, the Field Initiated (FI) Projects program. It aims to maximize the full inclusion and integration of individuals with disabilities through new methods, procedures, and rehabilitation technology. Another purpose of the FI Projects program is to improve the effectiveness of services authorized under the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended. This grant is for development activities, but research grants are also available (CFDA 84.133G-1). Development activities carried out under FI Project development grants must be research based. This grant opportunity is open a wide variety of grantees.
