Notice of intent to fund down the grant slate for the Disability and Rehabilitation Research Projects (DRRP) program for Traumatic Brain Injury Model Systems (TBIMS).
The Secretary intends to use the grant slate developed for the TBIMS grant competition in fiscal year (FY) 2007 to make new grant awards for TBIMS centers in FY 2008. The Secretary takes this action because Congress requested that the Secretary fund two additional TBIMS centers in FY 2008.Start Further Info

On February 14, 2007, we published a notice in the Federal Register (72 FR 7288) inviting applications for new awards under the TBIMS program for FY 2007. We received 23 applications for grants in response to that notice and funded 14 new grants.
The explanatory statement accompanying the Department of Education Fiscal Year 2008 Appropriations Act (Pub. L. 110-161) specifies that the Secretary reserve $8.3 million to carry out the TBIMS program and, more specifically, that in FY 2008 the Secretary fund two additional applicants from the list of unfunded applications for the last TBIMS grant competition. Consistent with the Congressional intent expressed in the explanatory statement, the Secretary intends to fund two additional TBIMS centers in FY 2008 by funding down the grant slate developed for the TBIMS program in FY 2007, which includes several high-quality applications that have not yet been funded.
