Government Funding

The Brain Injury Association of Virginia receives most of our funding from federal grants and state contracts that assist us in providing support and services to those affected by brain injury throughout the Commonwealth.

Grant: Federal TBI Act

In June 2014, the Virginia Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services (DARS) was awarded a four-year (2014-2018) federal TBI Act grant and has contracted with BIAV to carry out many of the deliverables. The purpose of this grant, titled Facilitating Access to Care and Enhancing Services (FACES) in Virginia, is to build and enhance Virginia’s infrastructure for service delivery to individuals with brain injury within four priority areas: information and referral, professional training, screening, and resource facilitation.

This grant is provided by the Administration for Community Living (ACL), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, under Traumatic Brain Injury Implementation Grant #90TBSG0002 and state contract # 14-322 administered by the Virginia Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services (DARS). Grantees undertaking projects under government sponsorship are encouraged to express freely their findings and conclusions.  Points of view or opinions do not, therefore, necessarily represent official policy of ACL or DARS.

Contract: Statewide Resource Coordination

Statewide Resource Coordination consists of outreach to people treated for brain injury and reported to the Virginia Statewide Trauma Registry; information and referral and consultation / technical assistance services; education, training, and public awareness activities; and systems change advocacy to enhance services for Virginians with brain injury. The primary functions of Resource Coordination are to offer education on brain injury; provide consultation and technical assistance services to persons with brain injury, family caregivers and professionals; offer a point of entry to available supports and services; and develop partnerships with individuals and organizations across the state through consultation and technical assistance.    

This contract is supported in part through state general funds (contract # 16-002A) administered by the Virginia Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services (DARS).
