through sending notices to the disability-relevant professional organizations and agencies and disability and rehabilitation research organizations that make up NIDRR’s stakeholder network. NIDRR should also make efforts to expand the network to organizations not yet familiar with the agency. Additionally, NIDRR should begin sending notices to university departments and offices of sponsored research. This could perhaps be accomplished through collaboration with other federal research programs that regularly send funding notices to universities. Increasing the number of potential applicants may also contribute to increasing the pool of reviewers, addressed by Recommendation 4-1 in the next chapter.
