In announcing these grant awards, Dr. David Reid, Clinical Psychologist and Chair of the CNI Advisory Board stated, "Though a difficult task indeed to select only a few of the many excellent proposals the Fund received this round, I am thrilled that we have the opportunity to continue to support program development and groundbreaking medical research for our fellow citizens with spinal cord and brain injuries. I am pleased with the continued progress this Fund makes and am honored to play a part in its continued success."

The Trust Fund is legislatively mandated to disburse funds equally to research and community-based rehabilitative service grants. Grant funding is awarded on a rotating basis through a Request For Proposal (RFP) process. Grants are funded for one to three year periods, at a maximum of $150,000 per year. The Department of Rehabilitative Services provides staffing for the CNI Trust Fund Advisory Board and also administers the Trust Fund Grants Program.
