Fighting for Veterans: The Assisted Living TBI Pilot Program Extension

The U.S. Senate passed a $16 billion overhaul to the Department of Veterans Affairs, which includes an extension to the Assisted Living TBI Pilot Program. The AL-TBI Extension Act was introduced with the goal of authorizing the continuations of a critical VA program that provides intensive care and rehabilitation to veterans suffering severe traumatic brain injuries.

What Is the AL-TBI Program?

The AL-TBI Program provides rehabilitation services to more than 100 veterans nationwide that have experienced moderate to severe traumatic brain injuries. These services included care in residential facilities that help the veterans improve their cognitive function and long-term health.New York Traumatic Brain Injury

The AL-TBI Program was scheduled to expire on September 30, 2014. With the help of Senators Corey Booker and Dean Heller, this vital program to Veterans suffering TBI has been extended for three years. This means that veterans with TBI can continue to receive therapy for movement, memory, speech and gradual community reintegration.
