The National Indian Health Board (NIHB), with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), is pleased to announce a call for applications for a Climate Ready Tribes (CRT) Initiative Mini-Award for Climate and Health Communication. This opportunity is designed to fund up to three (3) American Indian and Alaska Native Tribes to conduct low-cost, local work related to Tribal climate health. Each funded Tribe will receive up to $5000.
In previous years, NIHB has asked CRT awardees to develop unique workplans as part of the application process. However, this cycle of mini-award funding is designed to better accommodate Tribes needing assistance with determining how to start climate and health work and/or with the application process. This application does not ask awardees to determine project activities. Instead, NIHB will provide support through a structured program and funded Tribes will participate in cohort activities with other funded Tribes.
Need more information? Details are available in the application linked below. NIHB will also host an optional pre-application webinar on
