Cooperative agreement to a USA or territories government agency or Native American organization to provide services for individuals with brain injuries. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to several days to complete. The purpose of this program is to create and strengthen person-centered, culturally competent systems of services and supports that maximize the independence and overall health and well-being of all people with TBI across the lifespan, their family members, and their support networks.

The TBI State Partnership Program seeks to build and maintain an interstate community of collaboration that enhances the national impact of the program.

The goals of this funding opportunity are:

  • To increase collaboration and coordination of state level activities across systems and supports and to ensure all people with TBI, including those from diverse and underserved populations, and other stakeholders are provided ample opportunity to contribute meaningfully to needs assessments and state plans that will drive improvement of TBI services and supports.
  • To allow for more comprehensive data collection that shows the level of need for various types of services and supports across systems and identify barriers to services and supports.
  • To create a greater understanding of state demographics, resources, and program impact among partners as well as the effectiveness of different services or supports.
  • To create a better coordinated public investment in effective, high-quality, equitable, evidence-based services and supports for all individuals with TBI, their families, and their support networks that results in fewer people with TBI encountering barriers to needed services and supports.

The TBI State Partnership Program has approved performance measures that all grantees are required to report on semi-annually. Performance measures can be found in Section I.D.7. of this funding announcement and include but are not limited to the following:
