The financial burden associated with a TBI can be overwhelming to manage and financial assistance is often complicated and difficult to access.  However, there are a growing number of platforms to help facilitate that process.  

Potential sources of financial aid


  • Government

    • Federal

    • State
      • The availability of support (financially and service-based) varies greatly by state.  Unfortunately, not every state offers support for traumatic brain injury.
      • State benefit programs


  • Fundraising support

    • Help Hope Live provides support specifically for catastrophic injury campaigns

    • Go Fund Me enables friends and family to set up a personal fundraising campaign to cover medical expenses



    • Many foundations and community centers are location-specific, helping those within specific geographic boundaries.  Search online for TBI foundations in your city or state.
