Cooperative agreements to USA and territories nonprofit organizations, government agencies, school districts, tribes, and IHEs for projects that promote health equity in indigenous communities. Required registrations may take several weeks to complete. The purpose of the program is to improve health equity and close gaps in healthcare for Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander populations.
This notice solicits applications for projects to establish a Center for Indigenous Innovation and Health Equity (CIIHE), for which OMH will provide the organizational structure and operational framework. The CIIHE will support efforts including education, service and policy development, and research related to advancing sustainable solutions to address health disparities and advance health equity in the American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) and Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander (NHPI) populations. The CIIHE award recipients (awardees) will function as a single initiative, coordinated by OMH, through two cooperative agreements to be awarded through this funding opportunity. Each award will focus on one of the two focus populations:
An application may only address one focus population. An applicant may submit one application for each focus population.
OMH expects the recipients to implement the CIIHE by: (1) managing the CIIHE advisory board; (2) partnering with academic institutions, indigenous leaders and AI/AN and NHPI communities on CIIHE activities; (3) identifying and disseminating culturally appropriate evidence-based and/or evidence-informed interventions, and lessons learned; and (4) designing and providing education and training to support community capacity-building.
The CIIHE initiative is expected to result in: (1) increased community capacity and knowledge of culturally appropriate, evidence-based and/or evidence-informed interventions, and policies that address health disparities in AI/AN and NHPI populations; (2) increased utilization of effective strategies to reduce AI/AN and NHPI health disparities; and (3) improved AI/AN and NHPI health and reduction of health disparities.
