As part of its core mission, the National Council of Urban Indian Health is devoted to providing Technical Assistance (TA) for our member programs across Indian Country. Technical Assistance is a term used in Public Health to describe topic-specific guidance tailored based on needs and coupled with the use of innovative technology to facilitate capacity building of organizations. NCUIH strongly believes that providing customized and culturally sound capacity building and knowledge tools is essential to foster and trigger changes necessary to advance our community in the optimal direction.
In 2008, NCUIH founded the Technical Assistance and Research Center (TARC) to become the organization’s implementing agent to assist the Urban Indian Health Programs to attain their own goals in diverse areas such as Management, Health Information Technology, Finance and Operations, Board Education, Evaluation, Outreach, Quality Care and Technology, among other topics. As such, TARC has been designed to operate under a holistic approach that is both in seamless coordination with NCUIH’s Executive Office, the Policy and Legislation Center (PLC), and the Communications Division.
In addition to the resources gathered here, vital information about other topics that affect urban Indian health is available by completing the Technical Assistance Request Form.
