Funding Opportunity Description Statutory Authority The Indian Health Service (IHS), Office of Direct Service and Contracting Tribes is accepting competitive applications for two limited competition cooperative agreements under the National Indian Health Outreach and Education (NIHOE) program: The Behavioral Health—Methamphetamine and Suicide Prevention Intervention (MSPI) outreach and education award and the Human Immunodeficiency Virus/Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (HIV/AIDS) outreach and education award. The Behavioral Health—MSPI outreach and education award is funded by IHS and is authorized under the Snyder Act, codified at 25 U.S.C. § 13; the Transfer Act, codified at 42 U.S.C. § 2001; the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2012, Public Law 112–74 and the Continuing Appropriations Resolution, 2013, Public Law 112–175. The HIV/AIDS outreach and education award is funded by the PO 00000 Frm 00090 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Office of the Secretary (OS), Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). Funding for the HIV/AIDS award will be provided by OS via an IntraDepartmental Delegation of Authority dated July 17, 2017 to IHS to permit obligation of funding appropriated by the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2012, Public Law 112–74. Each award is funded through a separate funding stream by each respective Agency’s appropriations. The awardee is responsible for accounting for each of the two awards separately and must provide two separate financial reports (one for each award), as indicated below. This program is described in the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance under 93.933. Background The NIHOE program carries out health program objectives in the American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) community in the interest of improving Indian health care for all 566 Federallyrecognized Tribes including Tribal governments operating their own health care delivery systems through Indian Self-Determination and Education Assistance Act (ISDEAA) contracts and compacts with the IHS and Tribes that continue to receive health care directly from the IHS. This program addresses health policy and health programs issues and disseminates educational information to all AI/AN Tribes and villages. The NIHOE MSPI and HIV/ AIDS awards require that public forums be held at Tribal educational consumer conferences to disseminate changes and updates in the latest health care information. These awards also require that regional and national meetings be coordinated for information dissemination as well as for the inclusion of planning and technical assistance and health care recommendations on behalf of participating Tribes to ultimately inform IHS and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) based on Tribal input through a broad based consumer network. Purpose The purpose of these cooperative agreements is to further IHS health program objectives in the AI/AN E:\FR\FM\14AUN1.SGM 14AUN1

IHS received no comments regarding this collection. The purpose of this

IHS Scholarship Program (OMB Control Number 0917-0006).'' Type of
