The NSCD receives grant funding from Disabled Sports USA (DSUSA) that helps to keep certain programs low-cost or free for participants. As a condition of this grant funding, the NSCD reports some participant information to DSUSA, including birthdates and diagnoses, so that DSUSA can measure the impact of their funding.
