Description: The purpose of the Tribal Planning & Implementation (TPI) program is to support the planning and implementation for Tribes and Tribal Organizations (T/TO) positioned to begin operating a Community Health Aide Program (CHAP). The program is designed to support the regional flexibility required for T/TO to implement a CHAP unique to the needs of their individual communities across the country through the identification of feasibility factors. The focus of the program is to:Develop clinical supervisor support for primary care, behavioral health, and dental health clinicians providing both direct and indirect supervision of prospective health aides;Identify area and community specific needs of patients that can be addressed by the health aids;Identify and develop a technology infrastructure plan for the mobility and success of health aides in anticipation of providing services;Develop a training plan to include partners across the T/TO’s geographic region to enhance the training opportunities available to prospective health aides to include continuing education and clinical practice;Identify best practices for integrating a CHAP workforce into an existing Tribal health system;Address social determinants of health that impact the recruitment and retention of prospective health aides; andIdentify the total cost of full implementation of a CHAP within an existing Tribal health system.This is only a forecast. The synopsis and application package are not yet posted, and we have not yet finalized the application due date. This opportunity will be updated when it is published in the Federal Register.
