On October 28, 2019, the Administration for Community Living (ACL) announced the launch of the Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Technical Assistance and Resource Center. The goal of this center is to help states promote access to integrated, coordinated services and supports for individuals who have sustained a TBI, their families, and caregivers. This center will provide program support to ACL and technical assistance to ACL’s TBI State Partnership program grantees, and will develop and compile resources that will be available to the public. This effort reflects ACL’s commitment to independent living and person-centered planning.
The new center will be administered by the Human Services Research Institute and the National Association of State Head Injury Administrators (NASHIA), as well as subject matter experts that include individuals who have experienced a TBI.
