Policy Portal: Directory of Consumer Organizations

The Policy Portal is a directory of consumer-oriented organizations for NIDILRR grantees to use to promote their research findings and connect with organizations included in the directory. These organizations are well positioned to apply research findings in their efforts to improve policies that affect the lives of people with disabilities and their families. NIDILRR grantees may use the Search Function below to narrow the list of organizations by “NIDILRR Outcome Domain” or “Disability Type”.

If you are from a disability advocacy or consumer organization and would like to be added to the list, please contact Ann Outlaw (aoutlaw@air.org) for more information about our criteria for inclusion.
