New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, on June 30, 2022, signed into law a budget bill that includes $280,000 in funding for specialized community services to be administered by the Brain Injury Alliance of New Jersey.
Including this funding in the next State budget will ensure that people impacted by brain injury receive services that maximize their quality of life.
Funding supports the following Alliance objectives:
Outreach: To serve as a statewide resource to all aspects of brain injury.
Information & Resources Helpline:
To maintain a statewide system for purposes of identifying a wide
range of information and resources for individuals with varying levels
of brain injury and their families. Provide a website, e-mail address, and toll-free Family Helpline that enables users to contact the Information & Resource Service at
no cost to them.
Education: To provide people with brain injury, their families, and professionals who work with them
the opportunity to increase their knowledge of brain injury issues.
Advocacy: To ensure input by persons with brain injury and their families in order for the organization to address the needs of people with brain injury and to build the advocacy capacity of the Alliance.
Support services: To develop and maintain county level support groups of the Alliance which provide information about brain injury, local support, and networking for purpose of addressing issues of concern.
