Description: The primary purpose of this grant is to reduce the prevalence of substance use and decrease the overall use of addicting and illicit substances among American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) populations. Tribes can accomplish these goals by:1. Improving care coordination;2. Expanding behavioral health care services through the use of culturally appropriate evidence-based and practice-based models to address these issues; and3. Implementing early intervention strategies for AI/AN youth at risk for substance use behavior. In alignment with the Indian Health Service (IHS) 2019-2023 Strategic Plan Goal 1: To ensure that comprehensive, culturally appropriate personal and public health services are available and accessible to American Indian and Alaska Native people, the Substance Abuse and Suicide Prevention (SASP) program is designed to ensure access to comprehensive, culturally appropriate services and promote quality programming to address substance use for AI/AN youth and adults. The IHS supports Tribal efforts that include addressing substance use prevention, treatment, and aftercare from a community-driven context. The IHS encourages applicants to develop and submit a plan that emphasizes cross-system collaboration, the inclusion of family, youth, and community resources, and culturally appropriate approaches.This is a forecast only. Applications will be available once the Notice of Funding Opportunity for this program is finalized and published in the Federal Register.
