This is a list of the State Lead Centers in place for the Pediatric Acquired Brain Injury Plan. The job of the state lead center is to create a national structure providing complete national coverage and the ability to standardize the system of care while still providing the flexibility for each state to have its own pathway to universal accessibility.

Each State Lead center will have three main responsibilities: 1) developing and implementing a Statewide Master Plan creating a seamless, standardized, evidence-based system of care, universally accessible for all PABI families within their state; 2) providing a specialized case management system for these PABI families within their state; and 3) providing a Regional leadership role around one of the seven Categories of Care within the PABI Plan. The country was divided into seven regions of seven or eight states/territories in each region (Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Southeast, Mid-Central, South-Central, Rocky Mountain and Pacific Regions).
