Advocacy

Together, we can make an impact on

the brain injury community.

Brain Injury Advocates across Virginia joined our efforts throughout the 2022 General Assembly Session to expand services and staffing at state funded brain injury programs. You can learn more about those efforts on our Thank You for Phoning a Friend blog post.

The General Assembly adjourned its regular session on March 12, and left town without finishing their work on the budget. They have been called back to Richmond on Monday, April 4th, but we’re still not sure when to expect the budget.

The House and Senate each prepared a budget, and there are differences between them as regards brain injury funding. They will negotiate these differences and eventually reach an agreement. You can learn more about the budget amendments we support here.

We will keep you updated on any new developments. Make sure you are following us on social media and on our e-newsletter lists so you don’t miss out on any important action alerts!
