 The goal of the this

credit:


funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to support State, Territorial governments, Federally recognized Indian Tribal governments and Native American organizations as they address barriers to needed services encountered by children, youth, and adults with and at high risk for TBI.

Individuals with TBI may have different constellations of symptoms with different degrees of severity, and therefore may require a variety of services and supports including:
cognitive, physical, and/or occupation rehabilitation; speech and language therapy; educational supports and accommodations; employment supports and accommodations, including vocational counseling, skills assessment, job re-training and on-site coaching; independent living skills training; and training to utilize different modes of transportation.

After conducting a review of all previous Statewide TBI Needs and Resources Assessments, the HRSA TBI Program determined that four common barriers to accessing care continued to emerge across States and Territories.

These include:
(1) a lack of information of services and supports with little or no assistance in accessing them (information and referral services); (2) a shortage of health professionals who may encounter individuals with TBI but lack relevant training to identify or treat the resulting symptoms, including physicians, nurses, school staff, coaches, athletic trainers, social workers, psychologists, child care providers, domestic violence/ homeless/ emergency shelter staff, law enforcement, and assisted living facility personnel (professional training); (3) the absence of a TBI diagnosis, or the assignment of an incorrect diagnosis (screening); and (4) critical TBI services are spread across numerous agencies resulting in services being difficult for families to identify and navigate (resource facilitation).

To increase access to these services, responsive applications must outline a plan to provide  information and referral services, professional training, screening for TBI, and resource facilitation.
