The Pennsylvania Department of Health (DOH), Bureau of Family Health (BFH) has been awarded the Administration for Community Living (ACL) Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) State Partnership Program Mentor Grant. This funding opportunity will allow for the BFH to develop a NeuroResource Facilitation Program. The program will connect families and individuals with TBI to services and resources through case management. The BFH will also fund brain injury education and training to increase knowledge of TBI with a focus on TBI screening in the juvenile justice and the older adult population. The overall project aim is to help maximize the health, independence, and well-being of persons with TBI and their families in Pennsylvania. Through the Mentor Grant Program, the BFH will also mentor other states to assist with enhancing their programming, and will collaborate with ACL and other Mentor States to build on the overall TBI infrastructure. Contact Melissa Dehoff, RCPA Director of Rehabilitation Services, with questions.
