Indian Health Service Injury Prevention Cooperative Agreements

The Indian Health Service (IHS) is soliciting applications, via the attached April 14, 2015, FEDERAL REGISTER notice, for cooperative agreements under its Injury Prevention Program. The IHS has $1.8 million in FY 2015 funds for this program. The priorities for funding are prevention of motor vehicle crash related injuries and unintentional fall injuries. The deadline for receipt of applications is June 15, 2015.

Eligible applicants are tribes, tribal organizations, and urban Indian organizations. Funds are for five-year projects and will be awarded in two Parts. Applicants may apply under both Parts but can be awarded funds under only one Part.

Part I Injury Prevention Program funding is for new applicants who have not previously received Injury Prevention Part I funds. The applicant must have a user population of at least 2,500. The user population is defined as American Indian/Alaska Native people who have utilized IHS-funded services at least once during the past three years. The first year awards will be funded up to $100,000 and for each of the successive four years awards will be funded up to $80,000.

Part II Effective Strategy Projects funding is available to applicants regardless of whether they have previously received IHS Injury Prevention Part I or II funds. There are no population requirements in this category. Grant amounts are limited to $20,000 per year.

Please let us know if we may provide additional information regarding the IHS Injury Prevention Program.
