  • Evaluate START’s impact on a community’s ability to improve capacity
  • Expand the knowledge base regarding the challenges that individuals with IDD and behavioral health needs face and the solutions to overcome them
All START programs, along with current and potential partners, are eligible to apply. Priority will be given to projects that utilize SIRS data and show potential for publication. Research proposal submission details and additional information below and on our website.
