U.S. Department of Health and Human Services: Tribal Behavioral Health Grant ProgramDeadline: December 10, 2019
The Tribal Behavioral Health Grant Program (Native Connections) seeks to prevent suicide and substance misuse, reduce the impact of trauma, and promote mental health among American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) youth through the age of 24 years.
Native Connections is intended to reduce the impact of mental and substance use disorders, foster culturally responsive models that reduce and respond to the impact of trauma in AI/AN communities, and allow AI/AN communities to facilitate collaboration among agencies to support youth as they transition into adulthood. It is expected that recipients will develop and implement an array of integrated services and supports to prevent suicide. AI/AN community members should be involved in all grant activities, including planning, program implementation, and evaluation. At a minimum, community members should include youth, family members, tribal leaders, and spiritual advisors.
Amount: Approximately $9,820,000 is available to make up to 39 awards ranging up to $250,000 per year for a project period of five years.
Eligibility: Federally recognized AI/AN tribes, tribal organizations, Urban Indian Organizations, or consortia of tribes or tribal organizations.
