Purpose

Native American Research Centers for Health (NARCH) (S06) grants provide funding for new or continued centers that support research and research training to meet the health needs of American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) communities.

Funding should be used for research on AI/AN communities and individuals with the intent to reduce health disparities. Grantees should seek to strengthen partnerships and AI/AN community engagement in health research and increase the number of AI/AN scientists and health professionals engaged in health research.

Research priorities include:

  • Gaining a better understanding of strengths and resiliency factors
  • Strengthening partnerships and AI/AN community engagement in health research
  • Promoting the enhancement of student and/or faculty research scientists interested in addressing the health issues within the AI/AN communities
  • Encourage research infrastructure and capacity building within AI/AN communities and ensure sustainability of research within AI/AN communities
Eligibility

Eligible applicants include:

  • A federally recognized AI/AN Tribe
  • A Tribal organization, including Tribal colleges or health boards meeting this definition
  • A consortium of two or more of those Tribes or Tribal organizations.

The proposed NARCH may be a working partnership of the eligible AI/AN tribes/organization and of the research institution but federally recognized tribe/tribal organization must be the lead applicant.

The Research-Intensive Partner must be an accredited public or private nonprofit university, academic medical center, or other institution that has an established record of conducting research into the health problems of AI/AN; has demonstrated a commitment to enhancing the capability of AI/AN faculty/researchers, students, investigators, and communities to engage in biomedical, behavioral, social, clinical and health services research; and has demonstrated a commitment to mentoring AI/AN faculty/researchers, students, and investigators.
