HANC Funding

Healthy, Active Native Communities


The Association of American Indian Physicians’ (AAIP) is pleased to announce the Healthy, Active Native Communities mini-awards! AAIP’s mission is to support innovative, culturally sensitive, effective approaches to prevent obesity and improve nutrition and physical activity in American Indian communities. Mini-awards are available to Tribal Health Departments that use the monies to adapt and implement the CDC Winnable Battles Strategies and/or The Guide to Community Preventive Services ‘Recommended Strategies’ to engage their community in improving health. The AAIP intends to fund proposals that result in environmental, systematic, and/or policy change so that the results are sustainable, rather than one-time events.

THREE Tribal Health Departments will be awarded at $5,000 each.
