The Data and Policy Research Grant is established to support the collection and analysis of data that will provide Council, advocates and policymakers with objective research and findings that promote systemic change and capacity building to improve services and supports for people with developmental disabilities and their families.

Policy Topics

The Ohio Developmental Disabilities Council is seeking a follow up study to the previously released study entitled, "Transportation Challenges for Ohioans with Disabilities." This follow up study will be a look at the challenges identified in the initial study and include a second survey of questions used to determine trend values. Additional questions researchers may want to consider include:

How have transportation programs/services changed since the initial study?
Have any changes resulted in improved or reduced perceptions of the challenges identified in the initial study?
Have any of the issues identified by the initial study been successfully resolved?

Applicants are encouraged to include additional value-based questions not posed here.

A copy of the original study is attached to this Notice of Funds Available.
