Program accomplishments...

In fiscal year 2001, CDC supported 14 State projects, 12 research grants, and 3 national information centers as noted below. For fiscal year 2002, CDC is now funding 16 States under new 3 to 5 year project periods. These 16 States and the 12 continuing research projects funded in fiscal year 2002 emphasize the prevention of secondary conditions and health promotion for persons with disabilities and assessing environmental barriers and facilitators to access community programs and services for people with disabilities. The national limb loss information center, the national center on physical activity and disability, and the national paralysis resource center are providing information and referral regarding these issues. The State projects are expanding program visibility and prominence by building their emphasis on disability and health. This is being accomplished through strategic plans addressing Healthy People 2010 objectives, advisory council and advocacy input, policy development, university and voluntary organization partnerships, data access and analysis, client preventive services and access to care, surveys for determining physical limitations among the population, professional and public education, and the inclusion of program evaluation measures. For fiscal year 2002, the Research grantees will fully implement their respective protocols and studies. In fiscal year 2002, the currently funded National Limb Loss Information Center, National Center on Physical Activity and Disability, and National Paralysis Resource Center will continue expansion of their outreach and response capacity to directly support and refer identified needs of persons, providers, and organizations inquiring about these issues of concern. It is expected that all Research grants and the noted information/resource centers will be subject to re-competition in fiscal year 2003 based on the availability of funds. The number of such awards will be dependent on that appropriation process.
