Health Disparities Project Survey

Deadline: July 25, 2014

The goal of the Health Disparities Project is to generate new knowledge about health access and health outcomes among sub-groups of people with disabilities and translate and disseminate the findings for researchers, policy makers, and others. This fall, the project will release its major findings in Washington, DC, at the annual Research-to-Policy Roundtable meeting sponsored by the Disability Rehabilitation Research and Training Center on Disability Statistics and Demographics (StatsRRTC).

The release indicates that all HHS entities that provide funding for HCBS are expected to incorporate the paper's principles within their regulations, guidance, and/or the technical assistance they provide to states.
