This program aims to: (1) ensure American Indians/Alaska Natives have access to culturally competent, trained 988 crisis center support; (2) improve integration and support of 988 crisis centers, Tribal nations, and Tribal organizations to ensure there is navigation and follow-up care; and (3) facilitate collaborations with Tribal, state and territory health providers, Urban Indian Organizations, law enforcement, and other first responders in a manner which respects Tribal sovereignty.


Eligibility is limited to Federally recognized Indian Tribes and tribal organizations. Tribes and tribal organizations may elect to apply as part of a consortia. Urban Indian Organizations are also eligible to apply. Tribes and tribal organizations may only be included in one application.
