Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
The Department of Rehabilitation (DOR) is committed to providing services to individuals with disabilities through employment, independence and equality, including those individuals with a traumatic brain injury.
Annually, the DOR serves 2,400 individuals with acquired and traumatic brain injury through Vocational Rehabilitation, Independent Living and most recently the TBI Program. The DOR began administration of the California TBI Program in January 2010 with funding from the Seat Belt Penalty Fund.
The DOR serves persons with traumatic brain injury through these programs and providers:
Since 2010, the DOR has worked with stakeholders not only to support administration but also to look ahead and implement changes called for in AB 398 Assembly Bill - CHAPTERED (Monning, Chapter 439, Statutes of 2009). Updates to these and other activities will be posted on this website page.
TBI Meetings will also be announced in the Department's Boards and Committees Public Meeting Calendar page.
The Department of Rehabilitation (DOR) developed a survey for the TBI community’s input. The purpose of the survey was to collect input on scoring and weighting decisions for the upcoming Request for Application (RFA), and on determining the number of TBI grants.
This survey is part of a comprehensive set of strategies to finalize the RFA and provide opportunities for all interested TBI stakeholders to participate in the process. We collected responses through January 4, 2015.
Here are the compiled results and a narrative summarizing the results.
There are currently no scheduled meetings.
