                                           INTRODUCTION


     The Howard University Research and Training Center for
Access to Rehabilitation and Economic Opportunity (HURTC) is
funded by the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation
Research, United States Department of Education.  HURTC's three
foci are research, training, and dissemination.  This Sourcebook
is a component of the dissemination focus.

     The purpose of this Sourcebook is to provide information
about multicultural access to Federal projects, programs, grants,
and research and career enhancement opportunities for
individuals, institutions, and agencies.

     The Sourcebook is divided into three sections.  Section I
contains a description of the Office of Special Education and
Rehabilitative Services projects and programs, (including Office
of Special Education Programs, Rehabilitation Services
Administration, and the National Institute on Disability and
Rehabilitation Research).  Section II highlights profiles of
minority programs in various Federal agencies.  This section also
contains profiles of various human resource, development,
minority women's and person's with disabilities programs which
are available through the National Science Foundation.  Section
III contains information on multicultural diversity resources.
















                                                    SECTION I

         DESCRIPTION OF THE OFFICE OF SPECIAL EDUCATION
        AND REHABILITATIVE SERVICES PROJECTS AND PROGRAMS

     The three major objectives of the Office of Special
Education and Rehabilitative Services (OSERS), the secretary of
the United States Department of Education, are to (1) support
programs that assist in educating children, (2) provide for
rehabilitation of youth and adults with disabilities, and (3)
support research to improve the lives of individuals with
disabilities.  OSERS impacts on special education, rehabilitation
services and research, by directing, coordinating and
recommending policy.  OSERS administers programs designed to
facilitate the development and independence of persons with
disabilities. It does this through supporting opportunities for
independent living and delivery of vocational rehabilitation
services.  Additionally, OSERS administers funds for
rehabilitation and special education research, demonstration
projects, and dissemination of information about services, laws
and programs affecting individuals with disabilities. 

     The programs administered by OSERS include the Office of
Special Education Programs (OSEP), the Rehabilitation Services
Administration (RSA), and the National Institute on Disability
and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR).  Each of OSERS' three
program areas serve a specialized function which support the
OSERS' objectives. 

Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP)

     OSEP administers programs ensuring free appropriate public
education for children, youth, and adults with disabilities.  It
monitors programs to improve and expand services to special
populations, administers grants to state education agencies to
support state and local services to individuals with disabilities
(from preschool through adult levels),  and supports integrated
programs for persons with severely disabling conditions.  OSEP
administers programs which train educators (personnel
preparation), and conducts research to improve methods of
instructing or serving special education populations.

     OSEP's other areas of responsibilities include developing
and disseminating information about model programs serving post
secondary individuals with disabilities, and funding projects to
increase the high quality of instructional media, materials and
technology available to children and youth with disabilities.

     There are nineteen (19) specific grant programs administered
under OSEP.  The majority of the grant programs accept proposals
from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and
other culturally diverse  institutions or agencies.  The
following is a brief description of each of the 19 programs,
including information on who may apply and a contact telephone
number.

                    REHABILITATION  PROGRAMS

Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA)

     RSA allocates grants to state vocational rehabilitation
agencies that provide counseling, medical, job training,
psychological and other services to help individuals with
physical or mental disabilities gain employment.  A priority of
RSA is to provide services to persons who are severely disabled,
through funding of programs to train rehabilitation
professionals, enrich the lives of persons with disabilities,
increase employment opportunities, or support independent living
efforts.  One of RSA's programs is the Client Assistance Program
which assists persons with disabilities in receiving available
benefits. RSA supports independent living by administering
federal grants which may be combined with state funds to assist
state vocational rehabilitation agencies in providing services
such as counseling, housing, attendant care, transportation,
interpreters, readers, job placement and recreation.  RSA awards
are also made to assist and encourage supported employment
programs for persons with severe disabilities who are otherwise
considered unemployable.

     RSA grants also support rehabilitation services to the
disabled, migratory and seasonal farm workers with disabilities,
Native Americans, and individuals with severe disabilities who
are in transition from schools or institutions into the
community.

                   NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION

          HUMAN RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT MINORITY PROGRAMS

       Description of National Science Foundation Programs

     The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent
agency of the Federal Government established in 1950 to promote
and advance scientific and engineering progress in the United
States.  The foundation does this primarily by sponsoring
scientific and engineering research and education.  NSF does not
itself conduct research.

     The Foundation considers the preparation and advancement of
underrepresented minorities in science and engineering at all
educational levels to be of prime importance
to the Nation.  Consequently, the Foundation has redesigned and
enhanced its initiatives aimed at developing minority students
and strengthening the capacity of institutions and
organizations that serve large numbers of these students at all
educational levels.

     Because women are underrepresented in all science and
engineering disciplines, the Division for Human Resource
Development supports targeted interventions that are specifically
directed at increasing the number of women as full participants
in the mainstream of the Nation's scientific and technological
expertise.

     NSF also encourages persons with disabilities to participate
fully in NSF-supported projects.  In addition to the Facilitation
Awards for Persons with Disabilities program, the Foundation
promotes full inclusion of persons with disabilities in academic
studies leading to careers in science and engineering.

     The programs sponsored by NSF are described on the following
pages.
