NEW GRANTS ANNOUNCED FOR TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY STATE PARTNERSHIP PROGRAM

There’s a lot going on with ACL’s Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) program lately, and I wanted to share a few of the highlights.

We recently awarded 24 three-year cooperative agreements under two new funding opportunities for ACL’s Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) State Partnership Program. [This program is funded under the Traumatic Brain Injury Act of 2014 (P.L. 113-196), which also saw the transfer of this program to the Administration for Community Living.]

The goal is to create and strengthen a system of services and supports that maximizes the independence, well-being, and health of people with traumatic brain injuries across the lifespan, their family members, and their support networks. ACL funded two tiers of grantees through this program: Partner State Grants and Mentor State Grants. Grantees from both tiers will work together, with support from the TBI Coordinating Center, to maximize the program’s impact nationally.
