NIDILRR Hosts 2018-2023 Long-Range Plan Stakeholder Listening Sessions

Friday, October 21, 2016 - 9:45am

The National Institute on Disability, Independent Living and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) is hosting a number of listening sessions across the country over the next few months to help inform future funding priorities and strategic direction.  Stakeholders are invited to share their input in-person, via teleconference, or email.  NIDILLR asks that attendees be prepared to answer the following questions: 

  • What issues (barriers) make it challenging for you to be an active member of your community?
  • What improvements (name the top one or two) would make your daily life better?
  • What has changed, for better or worse, in the last five years that has affected your ability to achieve your goals?

The three-hour meetings will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. local time on the following dates:

  • October 28 in San Franscisco, CA
  • November 1 in Chicago IL
  • November 18 in Boston MA
  • December 5 in Dallas TX
