IHS Awards $8.3 Million in Grants To Support Urban Indian Health Programs

ROCKVILLE, MD – The Indian Health Service (IHS) Office of Urban Indian Health Programs has awarded grants totaling approximately $8.3 million to 32 urban Indian organizations through the 4-in-1 grant program. These grants will make health care services more accessible for American Indians and Alaska Natives residing in urban areas and support operations at urban health care facilities.

“The 4-in-1 grant program provides funding to urban Indian organizations to ensure comprehensive, culturally appropriate health care services are available and accessible for the urban Indian population,” said IHS Acting Director Elizabeth Fowler. “Together, we continue our work to improve the health and well-being of our urban Indian communities.”

Funding provided through the 4-in-1 grant program will be used to support four health program areas including: health promotion and disease prevention services; immunization services; substance use disorder related services; and mental health services.

These programs are integral components of the IHS health care delivery system and the grant funding will benefit thousands of urban Indian patients.
