Grants starting at $12,500 to USA Native American tribal governments and organizations operating health programs to provide diabetes treatment, prevention activities, and/or other services to the American Indian and American Alaskan communities. Grantees must implement a best practice program and can also provide other diabetes related community health services as needed.

Specifically, funding will awarded to provide diabetes treatment and/or prevention activities and/or services (also referred to as “activities/services”) for AI/AN communities. Grantees will implement one SDPI Diabetes Best Practice (also referred to as “Best Practice”) and report data on its Required Key Measure.

Grantees may also implement other activities/services based on diabetes-related community needs and develop an evaluation plan. Activities/services will be aimed at reducing the risk of diabetes in at-risk individuals, providing high quality care to those with diagnosed diabetes, and/or reducing the complications of diabetes.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

i. A Federally-recognized Indian Tribe as defined by 25 U.S.C. 1603(14), operating an Indian health program operated pursuant to a contract, grant, cooperative agreement, or compact with IHS pursuant to the Indian Self-Determination and Education Assistance Act (ISDEAA), (Pub. L. 93-638).

ii. A Tribal organization as defined by 25 U.S.C. 1603(26), operating an Indian health program operated pursuant to a contract, grant, cooperative agreement, or compact with the IHS pursuant to the ISDEAA, (Pub. L. 93-638).

iii. An urban Indian organization, as defined by 25 U.S.C. 1603(29), operating a Title V urban Indian health program that currently has a grant or contract with the IHS under Title V of the Indian Health Care Improvement Act, (Pub. L. 93-437). Applicants must provide proof of non-profit status with the application, e.g. 501(c)(3).

iv. Indian Health Service facilities: Under this announcement, only one SDPI Community-Directed diabetes grant will be awarded per entity. If a Tribe submits an application, their local IHS facility cannot apply; if the Tribe does not submit an application, the IHS facility can apply. Tribes that are awarded grant funds may sub-contract with local IHS facilities to provide specific clinical services. In this case, the Tribe would be the primary SDPI grantee and the Federal entity would have a sub-contract within the Tribe’s SDPI grant.

Current SDPI Community-Directed grantees are eligible to apply for competing continuation funding under this announcement and must demonstrate that they have complied with previous terms and conditions of the SDPI grant in order to receive funding under this announcement.
