Description

In 2010, Minnesota applied for and was awarded a federal TBI State Implementation Partnership Grant. This grant, entitled “TBI in Minnesota Correctional Facilities: Systems Change for Successful Return to Community,” was a four-year state partnership grant between the Minnesota Department of Human Services (MN-DHS) and the Minnesota Department of Corrections (MN-DOC). This grant allowed the MN-DOC and MN-DHS to build on work started through an earlier TBI State Implementation Partnership Grant awarded in 2006. In addition, the grant has supported MN-DOC efforts to find innovative ways to identify TBI (traumatic brain injury), to provide TBI training and education to staff across multiple disciplines, and to facilitate continuity of care not only during an offender’s time in prison but also upon release to the community at large. Similarly, Minnesota has made a concerted effort to identify and work with underserved populations that are at increased risk of TBI. Capacity building with American Indian communities has been a stated part of this goal.
