BIAA Action Alert: Protect Access to Care for Veterans

18-Jul-2014

Established by Congress in 2008, the Assisted Living TBI Pilot Program has made it possible for hundreds of wounded warriors to receive specialized, post-acute brain injury rehabilitation in the community.The program provides critical, real-life skills to help veterans return to their homes and communities. It has been a lifeline for hundreds of veterans.
 
Unfortunately, the Department of Veterans Affairs has announced that it will end the pilot program on September 30, 2014 unless Congress takes action to extend it. This means that the VA will soon begin to discharge veterans from the program. The Wall Street Journal recently highlighted the importance of the program and the challenges faced by many if Congress doesn't act soon.
 
We need your help to make sure the Assisted Living Pilot Program for Veterans with TBI continues to make a meaningful difference for America's heroes.
 
Please call your Representative and Senator to stress how important the program is to veterans and urge them to support extending the pilot program. Call the U.S. Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 where you will be transferred directly to their offices.

Thank you for your crucial contribution to this effort.
