intent is to increase knowledge and use of culturally appropriate interventions and to encourage an increased use of medication-assisted treatment (MAT).

This program will support Tribal and Urban Indian communities in their effort to provide prevention, treatment, and recovery services to address the impact of the opioid crisis within their communities.

Each application for the Community Opioid Intervention Pilot Projects (COIPP) will be required to address the following objectives:
1. Increase public awareness and education about culturally-appropriate and family-centered opioid prevention, treatment, and recovery practices and programs in AI/AN communities.

2. Create comprehensive support teams to strengthen and empower AI/AN families in addressing the opioid crisis in Tribal or Urban Indian communities.

3. Reduce unmet treatment needs and opioid overdose related deaths through the use of MAT.

In alignment with the 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 COIPP is designed to provide Tribes with the ability to develop unique and innovative community interventions that will address the opioid crisis at a local level.

The IHS supports Tribal and Urban Indian 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.
