In a communication to Tribal Leaders, Dr. José T. Montero, Director, Center for State, Tribal, Local, and Territorial Support for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), announced that the deadline to apply for OT20-2004 has been extended to Wednesday, June 3, 2020 or later by special request. Any eligible entity that needs additional time beyond the extended deadline of June 3, 2020, should email [email protected] by June 2, 2020.
Through recent COVID-19 supplemental appropriations from Congress, CDC will award up to $159 million (total funding) to federally recognized tribes and tribal organizations that contract or compact with the Indian Health Service under Title I and Title V of the Indian Self Determination and Education Assistance Act, or consortia of these tribes, or their bona fide agents. This is not a competitive award so all who apply and meet eligibility requirements will be awarded funding. CDC will work Tribes and Tribal Organizations to ensure that they meet all criteria to submit an application successfully. For additional information about the opportunity, please review the frequently asked questions document or email any questions to [email protected].
The National Indian Health Board has been providing technical assistance for this application and it is very important that Tribes and Tribal organizations apply for this funding. Please find materials from NIHB’s webinars and other resources on the Funding Opportunities page of the NIHB COVID-19 Tribal Resource Center. For questions, requests for technical assistance, or more information from the National Indian Health Board, contact Robert Foley at [email protected].
