TBI SPP in Arkansas:

In June, 2018, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Community Living (ACL) awarded the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS), Institute for Digital Health & Innovation (IDHI), funding to implement the Traumatic Brain Injury State Partnership Program (TBI SPP) in Arkansas.  The grant, in the amount of $150,000 per year for three years, was received in partnership with the Arkansas Department of Health,  and the Trauma Rehabilitation Resources Program.


TBI SPP Enables:

  • Local partnerships with TBI survivors, caregivers, family members, and healthcare providers who are interested in improving the quality of life for the state’s TBI population
  • National partnerships with other TBI SPP states, which provides benching opportunities that can help to build a stronger support infrastructure in Arkansas
  • Collaboration with TBI SPP mentor states, which maximizes the national impact of the  TBI SPP and supports the independence, well-being, and health of people with traumatic brain injuries across the lifespan, their family members, and their caregivers


Arkansas Goals:

  • Build an advisory board with engagement from those living with traumatic brain injuries
  • Identify and develop a plan for the underserved population living with brain injury (resources, education, etc.)
  • Build a trust fund and/or waiver program
