The purpose of the Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) program is to improve access, availability, appropriateness and acceptability of health and other services for individuals with traumatic brain injury (TBI) and their families. State TBI systems should be culturally competent and services should be person and family directed. States applying under this announcement must address the four Core Capacity Components of a TBI service system: a lead Designated State Agency and State staff person responsible for State TBI activities, a Statewide TBI Advisory Board, a Statewide Resource/Needs Assessment, and a Statewide Action Plan that is a comprehensive, community-based system of cure that addresses the need of individuals with TBI and their families. For FY 2004, three categories of State TBI funding opportunities are offered: I. Funding for up to 7 State TBI Planning (TBIP) Grant awards is available
to assist States and Territories to develop the infrastructure needed to implement a TBI program. States applying under this category MUST submit a plan for developing the Four Core Capacity Components. These components DO NOT have to be in place at the time of application. II. Funding for approximately 7 State TBI Implementation (TBII) Grants is available to help States move toward a Statewide system that will assure access to comprehensive and coordinated services for individuals with TBI and their families. III. Funding for approximately 2 State TBI Post Demonstration (TBIPD) Grants to address issues that will encompass specific State capacity building initiatives to contribute to sustainable change in the system of community services and supports that reflect the best practices in the field of TBI.
For all TBI State grants, State governments are the only eligible applicants for funding under the Federal TBI Program. Applicants for State TBI Post-Demonstration Grant s may only come from the State agency designated as the Lead Agency for TBI services within the State.
