About Us

This training is made possible by the collaboration of many agencies and partners.

The Lead Agency

The Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission (MRC) is the lead State agency for Traumatic Brain Injury. We envision a Commonwealth that is open to all, where everyone can seize their true potential and contribute fully to our communities and the world. We work together to break down barriers and make a better state possible for people with disabilities – one that is truly equitable, accessible, and inclusive.

Brain Injury Grant Projects

The agency has received grant funds from Administration of Community Living (ACL) (previously HRSA) for over 20 years. These grants focus on enhancing statewide programs, education, training and resources regarding brain injuries. The agency has developed tools, trainings and compiled resources for improving general knowledge of brain injuries and supporting at-risk populations. To learn more about our current grant efforts, please visit us at ACL Grant at MRC .

Over the years of multiple grant cycles, the agency has worked with a variety of partners. These partners have included:
