What is the ICDR?

The Interagency Committee on Disability Research (ICDR) facilitates the effective exchange of information on disability and rehabilitation research activities among its member agencies. We coordinate activities that span the areas of assistive technology and universal design; medical rehabilitation; data and statistics; employment; and community participation. The ICDR:

  • Collects input from stakeholders to inform planning;
  • Identifies emerging research areas;
  • Assesses gaps and duplications in existing research; and
  • Makes recommendations to strengthen the federal research agenda.

On our site you will find information about ICDR activities and products, and links to important research reports and resources from across the federal government.
