ICDR Seeks Your Recommendations on Emerging Disability Research Topics

Comment Period: March 27 - April 17, 2009 - 3:00 P.M. E.D.T.

Voting Period: April 22 - 29, 2009

Web site:

This year for the first time, the federally mandated Interagency
Committee on Disability Research (ICDR) is utilizing an innovative
Web-based approach to collect online disability research comments to
assist in developing a federal disability and rehabilitation 2010
research agenda.

This technology-driven approach gives the public a
three-week timeframe from March 27th through April 17th to submit their
recommendations. Additionally, registered participants will be invited
to review all comments submitted and vote on their top 10 concerns in
each topic area during the one-week period from April 22nd through April
29th. Public comments from stakeholders are the focal point of the
disability research recommendations in the ICDR Annual Report to the
President and Congress.
