The Traumatic Head and Spinal Cord Injury Trust Fund (THSCI) was created by the Louisiana Legislature in 1993 with Act 654, which imposes additional fees on motor vehicle violations in Louisiana for the offenses of driving under the influence, reckless operation, and speeding. These fees provide the funds for this program.
Louisiana’s Traumatic Head & Spinal Cord Injury Trust Fund Program provides services and supports in a flexible, individualized manner to Louisiana citizens with traumatic head or traumatic spinal cord injuries. The program enables individuals to return to a reasonable level of functioning and independent living in their communities.
