Request a Grant Writer

Grant to a USA IHE, state, agency, nonprofit, for-profit, or tribal organization for data collection on spinal cord injuries. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended to advance research and improve outcomes for individuals with spinal cord injuries through the proper collection and assessment of data.

The Administrator of the Administration for Community Living establishes a priority for the funding of a SCI Model Systems National Data and Statistical Center that advances medical rehabilitation by increasing the rigor and efficiency of scientific efforts to longitudinally assess the experience of people with SCI. To meet this priority, the SCI Model Systems National Data and Statistical Center's research and technical assistance must be designed to contribute to the following outcomes:

  • Maintenance of a national longitudinal database for data submitted by each of the SCI Model Systems Centers (SCI Model Systems Database).
  • High-quality, reliable data in the SCI Model Systems Database.
  • High-quality data collected from database participants of all racial/ethnic backgrounds.
  • Rigorous research conducted by SCI Model Systems Centers and all investigators who are analyzing data from the SCI Model Systems Database.
  • Enhanced continuity of the SCI Model Systems Database.
  • Improved quality and efficiency of the SCI Model Systems Database operations through collaboration with the National Traumatic Brain Injury Model Systems Data Center, the National Burn Model Systems Data Center, and the Model Systems Knowledge Translation Center (MSKTC).
  • Increased use and impact of the SCI Model Systems Database on the population of people with SCI through continued and enhanced collaborations that promote synergy with other SCI research initiatives.
  • Improved outcomes of the SCIMS through managing data, if requested, that is generated by module projects and collaborative projects that SCIMS centers are carrying out in fulfillment of their grant requirements.
  • Improved performance of the SCIMS by maintaining and working with the SCIMS centers to develop and revise standard operating procedures that provide guidance for SCIMS operations.
  • Increased public accessibility of SCI data, ensuring the confidentiality and integrity of the dataset as well as promoting the use of the data to advance knowledge, in consultation with NIDILRR.
  • Ongoing access to the tools and resources of the SCI Model Systems Data Center.
