Support for 988 Tribal Response Cooperative Agreements

The purpose of these cooperative agreements is to provide resources to improve response to 988 contacts (including calls, chats, and texts) originating in Tribal communities and/or activated by American Indians/Alaskan Natives. This program aims to:

  • Ensure American Indians/Alaskan Natives have access to culturally competent, trained 988 crisis center support
  • Improve integration and support of 988 crisis centers, Tribal nations, and Tribal organizations to ensure there is navigation and follow-up care
  • Facilitate collaborations with Tribal, state and territory health providers, Urban Indian Organizations, law enforcement, and other first responders in a manner which respects Tribal sovereignty.

Applications due October 25, 2022. Eligibility is limited to Federally recognized Indian Tribes and tribal organizations.
