NIHB Mini-Award for Climate and Health Communication

The The National Indian Health Board (NIHB), with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), is pleased to announce a call for applications for a Climate Ready Tribes (CRT) Initiative Mini-Award for Climate and Health Communication. This opportunity is designed to fund up to three (3) American Indian and Alaska Native Tribes to conduct low-cost, local work related to Tribal climate health. Each funded Tribe will receive up to $5000.

In previous years, NIHB has asked CRT awardees to develop unique workplans as part of the application process. However, this cycle of mini-award funding is designed to better accommodate Tribes needing assistance with determining how to start climate and health work and/or with the application process. This application does not ask awardees to determine project activities. Instead, NIHB will provide support through a structured program and funded Tribes will participate in cohort activities with other funded Tribes.

Need more information? Details are available in the application linked below.

NIHB also hosted a pre-application webinar on Thursday, October 17 to answer questions about the award and the application process. View the webinar slides. You may also contact [email protected] with questions.

Additional Funding Opportunities

For additional funding opportunities, please view NIHB’s "Funding & Opportunities" page here. This page includes all funding and opportunities that NIHB shares, not just those related to climate health. If you would like to receive funding opportunities in your email each week, you can sign up for the Climate and Health Learning Community here. Community members receive the public health broadcast weekly and other climate-specific mailings.
