Line Item: Traumatic Brain Injury Fund
The Traumatic Brain Injury Fund receives funds from appropriations from the Legislature, grants, and donations from private sources. The fund is to educate the public, coordinate short-term care, and support an information and referral system for persons with a traumatic brain injury. Medical treatment, long-term care, and acute care are not approved uses for the fund. Because the fund is an expendable special revenue fund, the agency does not need an appropriation to spend money in the fund.
Traumatic brain injuries result from external forces that caused damage to the brain. Depending on how much damage occurred, an individual's symptoms will be classified as mild, moderate, or severe.
UCA 26-50 establishes the Traumatic Brain Injury Fund and directs that the Fund can spend all revenues without additional Legislative action.
