I. Funding Opportunity Description

The Indian Health Service (IHS), Office of Clinical and Preventive Services,
Division of Nursing, Women’s Health (WH), announces a competitive
cooperative agreement for the Women’s Health Demonstration Cooperative
Agreement Program. This program is authorized under the authority of Section
301 (a) of the Public Health Service Act, as amended, and 25 U.S.C. 1653, 25
U.S.C. 1602(13), and 25 U.S.C. 1602(15). This program is described at 93.933
in the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA).

A. Purpose of the Program

The purpose of the Women’s Health Demonstration Cooperative Agreement
Program is to address a health facility’s capacity to improve access to
behavioral health (BH) care for American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN)
women and female adolescents who are at risk of experiencing domestic
violence and sexual assault (DV/SA) and the associated trauma. This
cooperative agreement will provide funding for the implementation of
trauma-informed BH service delivery within women’s primary care clinics. IHS
has identified the integration of BH services as a key strategy to improving
health outcomes and patient privacy and confidentiality.

No funds will be going to the IHS Service Units. Instead, the funding will
go to Tribes and urban Indian health centers with the expectation that when
needed, the Tribe, urban Indian health center, and the IHS site will
collaborate together to integrate the BH providers that are hired and funded
through this grant into the primary care clinics serving women and female
adolescents in the IHS site. Funds cannot be used to purchase, administer,
or facilitate abortions, including the purchase of Plan B or pharmacy drugs.
