BIAA Submits Testimony for TBI Funding

The Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA) has submitted written testimony to the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies calling for increased fiscal year 2018 appropriations for Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Act programs, including the state grant program, and for TBI Model Systems research funded by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR).

BIAA is also working with the Congressional Brain Injury Task Force (CBITF) Co-chairs to obtain support from Congressional members for increased funding. Individuals who are attending Brain Injury Awareness Day can download a copy of the CBITF letter to give to their Representatives during their office visits that day.
