Injury Prevention Program

The Indian Health Service (IHS) announces competitive cooperative agreement (CA) funding for the Injury Prevention Program (IPP) for American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/AN).

This program is described at 9 3. 284 in the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance.

The program is authorized


under 25 U.S.C.

13, Snyder Act, and 42 U.S.C., Section 301(a), Public Health Service Act, as amended.

Background Injury is a leading cause of death and disability for AI/AN communities.

Injuries cause more deaths among AI/AN ages 1-44 than all other causes combined (Trends in Indian Health 2002-2003 Edition, IHS, Division of Program Statistics).

The purpose of the IHS CA funding is to promote the capacity of Tribes and Tribal/urban/non-profit Indian organizations to build sustainable evidence-based IPP.

Capacity building supports initiatives for sustaining Tribal ownership of IPP.

This includes identifying priorities for planning, implementation, and evaluation of comprehensive IPP.

A comprehensive approach in IPP includes:
(1) education; (2) enforcement or policy development; and (3) environmental modifications.

This funding will provide an opportunity for Tribes to design effective and innovative strategies in the prevention of injuries.

The IHS IPP funding will be a competitive application process for new and existing Tribal IPP.

The IHS IPP funding will target two priority areas:
motor vehicle-related injuries and unintentional fall prevention for ages +65 years.

The priorities integrate the effective strategies for motor vehicle and unintentional fall prevention published at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website:

Purpose The IHS will accept CA applications for two categories that support AI/AN:
Part I and Part II:
A) PART I includes two categories, (a) new applicants and (b) previously funded Part I applicants.

All Part I applicants must meet the IHS minimum user population of 2,50 0. The population limit is set by the IHS IPP and not by the IHS.

IHS user population is defined as AI/AN people who have utilized services funded by the IHS as least once during the last three-year period.

(a) Part I (a) applicants are new to Tribal IPPs and have not received IHS Injury Prevention funding within the past two years.

(b) Previously funded Part I (b) applicants are the 2005-2010 Tribal Injury Prevention Cooperative Agreement Program (TIPCAP) grantees.

B) PART II is for applicants that will use effective strategies in 3 year projects with no population requirements.
