The CHRIL provides disability stakeholders with accurate, current, accessible and actionable information on how recent changes in health policy affect the community living and integration of working-age adults with disabilities. We are funded by a grant from the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR), US Department of Health and Human Services.
