In July 1996, Congress enacted Public Law 104 166 to provide for the conduct of expanded studies and the establishment of innovative programs with respect to traumatic brain injury, TBI. Under the Law, the Health Resources and Services Administration, HRSA, Maternal and Child Health Bureau, MCHB, is charged with implementing a State Grants Program, formerly called the TBI State Demonstration Grant Program, to improve access to health and other services for individuals with TBI and their families. The National Institutes of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, CDC, have also been delegated responsibilities in the areas of research, and prevention and surveillance respectively. The Federal TBI Program was reauthorized as part of the Childrens Health Act of 2008. Through this program States and Territories are eligible to receive two types of TBI Grants. This announcement solicits competitive applications for one type, State Implementation Partnership Grants. These grants are to be used by states to establish an infrastructure for the delivery of TBI related services and to improve the States ability to make system changes that will sustain the TBI service delivery infrastructure. This is the first of a four year project period. (The second category is TBI Protection and Advocacy, P&A, grants to the Governor designated State Protection and Advocacy organizations. These grants provide information and referral services, training in self advocacy, advocacy, and litigation services to individuals with TBI and their families. Since FY 2006, the Federal Program office has only two categories of grants, and the phrase Federal TBI Program is currently an umbrella for 2 components, State Implementation Partnership Grants and Protection and Advocacy Grants.)
