Tribal Self-Governance Program (TSGP) Planning Cooperative Agreements will award funds to tribes interested in participating in the TSGP so they can manage IHS programs, services, functions, and activities and tailor healthcare programs to community needs.

The planning phase helps Tribes make informed decisions about healthcare programs, as well as the organizational changes necessary to successfully support them. The planning phase is designed to ensure that the Tribe is fully prepared to assume the transfer of IHS programs and services to the Tribal health program.
