This opportunity continues NIHB’s commitment to enhance the capacity of Tribes. The funding will provide an opportunity to increase the level of programming, research, policy development, coordination, and/or communication between Tribal programs, leadership, community, and key partners involved in addressing the health consequences of the opioid epidemic.

To be eligible for the capacity building project, the applicant must be an official Tribal entity or program (defined as a federally recognized Tribal government, Tribal organization, inter-Tribal consortium, or Tribal health care facilities/health systems as defined in the Indian Self-Determination and Education Assistance Act, as amended).

Applicants are eligible to apply for up to and no more than $15,000.00 in combined direct and indirect costs.  

Use the NIHB toolkit which adapts CDC-developed opioid materials for providers and patients as the framework to develop strategies and programs to increase the knowledge and capacity of Tribal providers and patients to improve opioid related health outcomes.
