Obama Funds the HRSA State Grant Program

Patient in Doctors Office

This morning President Obama released his FY 2011 budget. Last week, the State of the Union address warned of spending freezes and tough decisions on what programs to keep and what programs to discontinue in the coming year.

BIAA is pleased to announce that the HRSA state grant program, authorized by the TBI Act, has been level funded in the President’s budget.

Although the appropriations process for 2011 is far from over, we are off to a good start.  BIAA would like to make a push for increased appropriations for this program at the 2010 Brain Injury Awareness Day on March 17th on Capitol Hill.  Please contact Sarah D’Orsie, Director of Government Affairs, BIAA at [email protected] if you are planning to attend.
