How to Join

We invite all NIDILRR-funded projects to join or renew membership in NARRTC. The mission of NARRTC is to promote the full inclusion of persons with disabilities in American life through applied research, training, technical assistance, knowledge translation, development and demonstration activities. The Association values excellence in conducting research to solve issues of disability and service delivery, and in developing evidence-based products that make a difference in the lives of persons with disabilities.

NARRTC membership provides the opportunity for NIDILRR-funded grantees to work together to make a positive difference in the lives of persons with disabilities. The Association was founded over 30 years ago as the National Association of Rehabilitation Research and Training Centers (RRTCs). The Association’s current name is the acronym NARRTC, which reflects that membership has expanded to include ALL NIDILRR-funded projects. Dues are used to support association activities, many of which are described in the NARRTC brochure.

Annual Dues are based on a project’s budget for the period January through December. Dues for grantees funded above $350,000 per year are $500. Dues for grantees funded under $350,000 per year are $200. This level also includes grantees who have received no-cost extensions for the current fiscal year. Switzer Fellows and Phase I SBIR grantees are invited to join with a complimentary membership.
