our grants

Here you will find our most current grant programs and services including Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Good Health and Wellness grant, Caring Van Program (CDC), Tobacco Program (CDC), Health Disparities Grant, the Oklahoma Shared Clinical and Translational Resources (OSCTR) Grant, Prevention Institute Grant (Men’s Health), Strategic Prevention Framework Partnerships for Success (SPF-PFS) Grant, Strategic Prevention Framework for Prescription Drugs (SPF-Rx) Grant, and future programs such as the Youth Services Academy.

While we have seen the largest grant-funding procured in the history of the Southern Plains Tribal Health Board and the Oklahoma Area Tribal Epidemiology Center over the past two years, this current grant cycle proposes to be even larger. We are working to increase diversification of our grants and funding portfolio to expand and increase our reach with additional and new federal agencies, private foundations, both corporate and individual, and increasing our partnerships and stakeholders.

Within the last 45 years we have given over $80 million dollars back to our tribal communities, and currently we are giving $25.6 million to our tribal communities through federal grant funds!
