Utah Traumatic Spinal Cord (SCI) and Brain Injury Rehabilitation (TBI) Fund
What is the SCI/TBI Rehabilitation Fund?
The Traumatic Spinal Cord and Brain Injury Rehabilitation Fund was established during the 2012 Utah Legislative Session (Section 26-54) as a restricted special revenue fund that consists of gifts, grants, donations, or any other conveyance of money that may be made to the fund from private sources; portion ($20) of the impound fee as designated in Section 41-6a-1406; and amounts as appropriated by the legislature. The Legislature appropriated an initial allocation of $200,000 for State Fiscal Year 2013. The fund shall be administered by the executive director of the Department of Health in consultation with the advisory committee.
The SCI/TBI Rehabilitation Fund provides individuals with
spinal cord or traumatic brain injuries with physical, occupational, and speech therapy;
and equipment necessary for daily living activities.
The SCI/TBI Fund is designed to be a payor of last resort, meaning individuals have no other financial means available to obtain these services.
