The Indian Health Service (IHS) has developed the Mental Health and Community Safety Initiative (MHCSI) for American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) Children, Youth and Families. The IHS announces the availability of Fiscal Year (FY) 2006 funds for limited competition for MHCSI Grants to implement innovative strategies that focus on mental health, behavioral, substance abuse, and community safety needs of AI/AN young people and their families who are involved or at risk of involvement with the juvenile justice system. This effort was first initiated through the White House Domestic Policy Council to provide federally recognized Tribes and eligible Tribal organizations with assistance to plan, design and assess the feasibility of implementing a culturally appropriate system of care for AI/ANs. The planning phase which was under a cooperative agreement focused on integrating traditional healing methods indigenous to the communities with conventional treatment methodologies. This grant announcement will focus on implementation of services utilizing the planning phase accomplishments as a foundation. Applicants should have completed a four-year planning process in the development of the implementation plan which has been developed collaboratively with participation of the service population and the various resource provider agencies in the community to be served. This program is authorized under the Snyder Act, 1921 and under authority of 25 U.S.C. 1621h(m), Indian Health Care Improvement Act (IHCIA). This program is described at 93.228 in the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance. This grant will be awarded and administered in accordance with: 1.
