Office of Tribal Affairs and Policy

SAMHSA’s Office of Tribal Affairs and Policy (OTAP) works with tribal nations and tribal groups to address behavioral health issues that impact Native people.

The Office of Tribal Affairs and Policy (OTAP) serves as the agency’s primary point of contact for tribal governments, tribal organizations, and federal agencies on behavioral health issues that impact tribal communities. Learn more about SAMHSA’s support for tribal affairs and its commitment to ensuring that American Indians and Alaska Natives have access to culturally competent prevention, treatment, and recovery support services.

OTAP also supports SAMHSA’s efforts to implement the Tribal Law and Order Act (TLOA). This work is carried out in partnership with tribal nations and in collaboration with other SAMHSA offices and centers, as well as other federal agencies. Learn more about TLOA implementation.
