Grants to USA organizations for culturally appropriate programs to improve the health of Native American populations. The purpose of the program is to reduce chronic illness through management, prevention, and educational initiatives. Priority will be given to programs that address heart disease and stroke, obesity prevention, commercial tobacco use prevention and cessation, and type 2 diabetes.

Urban Indian Health Institute (UIHI) is requesting applications for funds to address Chronic Disease education, prevention, and management in the urban American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) population.

Funding will support the establishment of sustainable chronic disease prevention initiatives that are using culturally adapted Indigenous methods, frameworks, and evaluation approaches that are regionally tailored by environment, culture, sociodemographic composition, as well as specific healthcare and infrastructure gaps of applicant sites.

Objective: The Community Grants Program Request for Applications (RFA) (RFA – Community Grants) encourages the use of AI/AN traditional, cultural, and regional knowledge in developing, implementing, and/or supporting chronic disease education, prevention, and management initiatives amongst urban Indian communities. 

In this upcoming grant cycle, Sage funds will focus on Indigenous approaches to but are not limited to:

  • Obesity Prevention,
  • Commercial Tobacco use Prevention and cessation,
  • Type 2 Diabetes, and
  • Heart Disease and Stroke.

Priority Approaches: Funding that you receive may be used for expanding previous projects related to obesity prevention, commercial tobacco use prevention and cessation promotion, Type 2 Diabetes prevention, and Heart Disease and Stroke prevention. Examples include chronic disease prevention and education, and/or management activities that:

  • Use cultural or regional adaptations of chronic disease prevention education program components, curriculums, toolkits, etc.;
  • Reclaim traditional knowledge of nutrition and use of first foods;
  • Promote access to or use of physical activity and other lifestyle modifications;
  • Engage Native youth and/or elders;
  • Address perceptions and beliefs and promote traditional values; or promote activities that emphasize community-driven planning for chronic disease prevention and control such as community needs assessments.

Recipients may:

  • Use funds only for reasonable project purposes, including personnel, travel, supplies, and services; and
  • Salaries if requested are restricted to project activities.
