Additional Information of Eligibility:
Eligible applicants are federally recognized American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) tribes, tribal organizations, urban Indian organizations, and consortia of tribes or tribal organizations.

Tribal organization means the recognized body of any AI/AN tribe; any legally established organization of AI/ANs which is controlled, sanctioned, or chartered by such governing body or which is democratically elected by the adult members of the Indian community to be served by such organization and which includes the maximum participation of AI/ANs in all phases of its activities.

Consortia of tribes or tribal organizations are eligible to apply, but each participating entity must indicate its approval.

A single tribe in the consortium must be the legal applicant, the recipient of the award, and the entity legally responsible for satisfying the grant requirements.

Urban Indian Organization (UIO) (as identified by the Office of Indian Health Service Urban Indian Health Programs through active Title V grants/contracts) means a non-profit corporate body situated in an urban center governed by an urban Indian-controlled board of directors, and providing for the maximum participation of all interested individuals and groups, which body is capable of legally cooperating with other public and private entities for the purpose of performing the activities described in 25 U.S.C.1653(a).

UIOs are not tribes or tribal governments and do not have the same consultation rights or trust relationship with the federal government.

The purpose of this program is to address trauma, prevent and reduce suicidal behavior and substance use among AI/AN young people; therefore, SAMHSA is limiting eligibility to AI/AN tribes, tribal organizations, consortia of tribes or tribal organizations, and urban Indian organizations.

Grantees that received an award under the Cooperative Agreements for Tribal Behavioral Health (Native Connections) FOA # SM-16-010 and SM-14-013 are not eligible to apply in order to broaden the reach in AI/AN tribes, tribal organizations, consortia of tribes or tribal organizations, and urban Indian organizations.

Only one application per applicant will be accepted and reviewed.
