BIAA endorses the Heroes at Home Act of 2009
This week, BIAA submitted a letter to the House Veteran’s Affairs Committee, Subcommittee on Health urging consideration of the Heroes at Home Act of 2009 (HR 667). The bill would significantly improve support for family caregivers of returning service members with TBI and acknowledge the critical role played by family caregivers in facilitating recovery from brain injury and the pressing need for training, certification and financial compensation of caregivers.
BIAA will continue to advocate for the swift passage of this bill as the 111th Congress progresses. The legislation currently has 36 cosponsors.
