People with disabilities may live in a wide range of areas, from densely populated urban areas to rural areas where neighbors are few and far between. NIDILRR-funded research has shown that people with disabilities residing in urban and rural areas may need different supports to stay socially connected to their communities, may have differences in trust in information sources and preventative practices related to COVID-19, and  may have limited access to services due to a lack of transportation options in their area. The NIDILRR community conducts research and develops evidence-based consumer-friendly products to help people with disabilities living in rural communities to work, study, live independently, and participate in their communities. Below, you will find just a few examples of these products:
