Native Hawaiian Health Care Improvement Act: This announcement solicits applications for the Native Hawaiian Health Care Improvement Act program.  The Native Hawaiian Health Care Improvement Act (NHHCIA), as amended (42 U.S.C. 11701 - 11714), states that “it is the policy of the United States in fulfillment of its special responsibilities and legal obligations to the indigenous people of Hawaii … to (1) raise the health status of Native Hawaiians to the highest possible health level; and (2) provide existing Native Hawaiian health care programs with all resources necessary to effectuate this policy” [see 42 U.S.C. 11702(a)].  The NHHCIA authorizes funding opportunities for the following activities:

·         Service grant to Papa Ola Lokahi (POL) for the activities described in the NHHCIA, including the coordination of the health care programs and services provided to Native Hawaiians.

·         Service grants to the five recognized community-based Native Hawaiian Health Care Systems (NHHCS) to provide a full range of services identified by the legislation and tailored to fit the needs of their respective island communities.

This Congressional Special Initiative is a limited competition program announcement.  This FOA provides instructions to be used by existing recipients under the NHHCIA in preparing applications for funding for fiscal years 2015 through 2017.
