What is the TBI Fund?

Established by the Utah State Legislature in 2008, the TBI Fund seeks to educate and empower those whose lives have been impacted by the effects of a traumatic brain injury. Individuals with a TBI may receive help with resource facilitation or neuropsychological testing through the TBI Fund. Resource facilitation is a process that involves working with caring, trained experts who understand what someone with a TBI is going through. These experts provide short-term support to help the person with the TBI and their family members meet their goals and successfully return to school, work, or other daily activities.

The TBI Fund is a payor of last resort, meaning individuals have no other financial means available to obtain these services. However, everyone who calls the Utah TBI Fund for help receives a free intake assessment and consultation from a trained brain injury coach. Individuals may also qualify to receive help with physical, occupational, and speech therapy or equipment needed for daily living through the Utah Traumatic Spinal Cord and Brain Injury Rehabilitation Fund.
