Those services may include (1) alcohol and substance abuse prevention, treatment, rehabilitation and education; (2) mental health needs and assessments; (3) health promotion and disease prevention services; and (4) immunization services.

In addition, IHS may enter into contracts with and make grants to urban Indian organizations to employ American Indian and Alaska Natives (AI/AN) trained as Community Health Representatives to provide health care services.

The purpose of this IHS cooperative agreement is to fund a national urban Indian organization to act as an education and research partner for OUIHP and urban Indian organizations funded under the IHCIA.
