Great Plains Tribal Epidemiology Center seeks to make funding and other opportunities available to our tribal and other partners for projects supporting a variety of meaningful public health activities.
Tribal Student Public Health Research Project Mini-Grants
Applications now being accepted, reviewed, and selected on an on-going basis until the remaining (4) opportunities are awarded.
GPTEC is pleased to offer tribal student mini research grants that contribute to the Public Health educational development of American Indian/Alaskan Native college level students. Funding is provided by the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD). The purpose of the mini research grants is to provide opportunities, support, and guidance to tribal students interested in pursuing careers related to improving health/reducing disparities among the tribal communities of the Great Plains service area.
Research projects funded under this opportunity will be expected to be public health related and take place within a tribal community located within the GPTEC Great Plains service area. Research projects should lead to a better understanding of how to address health disparities in the Great Plains area tribal communities.

Ending the HIV Epidemic in the Great Plains Area
GPTEC is aiming to complete a Community Readiness Assessment alongside interested tribes to understand their level of readiness for contributing to Ending the HIV Epidemic in their area. The assessment will involve interviews to measure HIV prevention, education, testing, and response activities as well as priorities, needs, and other details and to guide the development of Community Response Plans.

Tribal Public Health Accreditation Readiness Assessment
Great Plains Tribal Epidemiology Center is interested in working with (1) Great Plains Area tribe to conduct an assessment to identify readiness for pursuing tribal public health accreditation. Exact assessment procedures will be identified in partnership with the participating tribe, but will likely involve implementation of the Community Readiness Model and/or the Tribal Public Health System Performance Assessment (T-PHSPA) instrument.
