Hawaiians to the highest possible health level; and (2) provide existing Native Hawaiian health care programs with all resources necessary to effectuate this policy" [see 42 U.S.C.


The NHHCIA authorizes funding opportunities for the following related activities:

o Service grants to the five recognized community-based Native Hawaiian Health Care Systems (NHHCS) to provide a full range of services identified by the legislation and tailored to fit the needs of their respective island communities.

This Congressional Special Initiative is a non-competitive program announcement.
