Project Summary

The National Council on Disability (NCD) seeks proposals for a cooperative agreement to develop NCD's annual progress report which will examine COVID-19's broadscale impacts on the lives of people with disabilities in seven major areas: nondiscriminatory access to healthcare; the direct care workforce; group housing; education; employment; mental health; and communications. The report will also include a discussion of the intersection of disability and race, and of transportation impacts. The research and findings in this report will provide policymakers, including the White House and Congress, and federal agencies, with insight needed to make policy decisions to improve the current and future welfare of people with disabilities in a national emergency like the COVID-19 pandemic. The report will also provide people with disabilities information on federal policy, legislation, and initiatives related to emergency preparedness and response.
