Kathy Wu awarded a one year 10K grant from Policy Research, Inc
Congratulations to Kathy Wu for being awarded a one year 10K grant from Policy Research, Inc., Disability Determination Small Grants Program. Kathy received the grant based on the study titled, The “Lived Experiences” of a Chronically Homeless, Urban Population: Systemic Challenges to Achieving their Vocational and Rehabilitation Dreams. This qualitative study hopes to explore the never-before-considered stories of homeless individuals who have applied for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and/or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). The ultimate aim of this research is to help improve the efficiency and reduce the unnecessary complexity of disability determination processes by capturing the narratives of those who have the most to gain from an improved system.
