NCD Funding Opportunity: Evaluate the Impact of Section 503 Rehabilitation Act Amendments

The National Council on Disability (NCD) released a notice of funding for a cooperative agreement.  Applicants are given the opportunity to propose methods for determining the impact of increasing employment opportunities for people with disabilities. The project seeks to examine the implementation and projected effectiveness of the amended Section 503 regulations that became effective in March 2014. Among other things, the resultant report is expected to develop recommendations for improving employee self-disclosure rates and discuss the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs’s role in improving contractor compliance. The award amount is $100,000 and proposals are due May 31, 2016.
