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.
The Technical Assistance and Research Center (TARC) provides individualized technical assistance, training, and support to member UIOs. Individual support includes:

To create a shared learning environment among Urban Indian Organizations (UIOs), the National Council of Urban Indian Health (NCUIH) requests submission of any policies and procedures from UIOs. This effort is to share resources, tools and/or approaches that would enhance the delivery of comprehensive health care services to Urban AI/ANs.
Please submit policies and procedures using this submission form. The policies and procedures will be shared on the password protected NCUIH Technical Assistance Portal (NTAP) for member UIOs ONLY. Policies and procedures may address governance, finance, operations, clinical, inpatient settings, public health, emergency planning, HIT, outreach/referral, transportation, safety, quality and much more. All submitted P&P can be altered to redacted templates, by request.
