Urgent Call to Action for Traumatic Brain Injury Congressional Funding

The Brain Injury Association of America has just issued this important call to action to Urge Congress to Increase Funding for Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Programs:

The Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services and Education begins consideration of the FY10 funding bill today!

Over the next few days, the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services and Education will be considering a bill which will provide the funding allocation for programs authorized through the TBI Act and for NIDRR's TBI-related research programs, including TBI Model Systems of Care.

Federal funding for these important TBI programs has remained stagnant over the last several years, as Congress has not provided increases sufficient to keep up with the increasing cost of doing business. The urgent need for increased federal support for a national TBI public health infrastructure and TBI research is further heightened by the recognition of TBI as the signature wound of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The time is now to urge Members of Congress to adequately fund TBI programs!

Please contact your congressional representative as soon as possible to urge funding for traumatic brain injury programs.
