American Indian/Alaska Native Health

No upcoming meetings at this time.

Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) improves access to health care services for all people in the U.S. who are uninsured, isolated, or medically vulnerable and supports health care providers in every state and U.S. territory.   

HRSA is working with partner Federal agencies and Tribal communities in order to increase access to health professionals, health centers, and affordable health care in hopes of decreasing Tribal health disparities.

Health Resources and Services Administration provides opportunities for collaboration with Indian Health Service (IHS) facilities and Tribal organizations to improve access to care for American Indians and Alaska Natives. The two agencies are natural partners in providing comprehensive, culturally acceptable, accessible, affordable health care to improve the lives of Tribal populations. 

Opportunities for Collaboration

To help Tribal organizations maximize the impact of key HRSA programs, the two agencies have identified the following priorities:

  • Greater Urban Indian Health participation in the Health Center Program
  • Better application of the Health Professional Shortage Area (HPSA) designation to Tribal populations
  • Workforce support through health professions programs and the National Health Service Corps
  • Broader participation in the HRSA competitive grants process
  • Technical assistance from HRSA regional offices
