4-in-1 Grant Program
The 4-in-1 grant program is an Indian Health Service (IHS) initiative which funds Urban Indian Organizations to “ensure comprehensive, culturally acceptable personal and public health services are available and accessible to the Urban Indian population.” Thirty-three (33) Urban Indian Organizations were awarded 4-in-1 grants during FY 2019, and they remain a key component of the public health services infrastructure nationwide.
The grant is spilt into four parts, with grantees providing services in each of the following areas:
- Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Services
- Immunization Services
- Alcohol and Substance Abuse Services
- Mental Health Services
Awardees are required to participate in a National Evaluation of their 4-in-1 activities. This allows for monitoring and evaluation of cultural interventions and evidence-based approaches.
In partnership with the IHS Office of Urban Indian Health Programs (OUIHP), the National Council of Urban Indian Health (NCUIH) provides technical assistance to awardees of this grant program, covering program planning, implementation, and evaluation.
