The majority of awards for State capacity projects in the past have been made to State health departments and universities with State collaboration to develop a statewide focus for the prevention of secondary disabilities and health promotion for persons with disabilities within a structured State office, to establish an advisory body to guide the development of planning and make recommendations to fill gaps in prevention, to establish and build partnerships with universities and advocacy/ voluntary organizations for public health surveillance and health promotion delivery programs for persons with disabilities, and to conduct surveillance and implement community projects in the targeted disability domains. Research grantees have accessed data and service programs to identify persons with disabilities, conducted surveillance, and implemented studies and interventions designed to prevent selected or a range of secondary conditions related to cost effectiveness, measurement of participation in the environment of persons with disabilities, women, minorities, and adolescents and older citizens with disabilities. Current Research grantees include universities and rehabilitation hospitals. The National Limb Loss Information Center has worked to build, expand, and utilize a national network for providing information, referral, and peer counseling programs for persons with limb loss. The Limb Loss Research and Epidemiology project includes both a disability service organization and a leading research university. The National Center on Physical Activity and Disability is based at a major research university with key collaborating partners in rehabilitation, education, web site development and linkages, library capacity, and physical accessibility. The new National Resource Center on Paralysis is also developing a comprehensive program to address a wide range of service and referral systems.
