Grants of up to $75,000 to California Indian and Tribal health centers and organizations to address substance abuse disorders. Funding is intended to help plan or implement community-based best practices for substance use disorder services for Tribal and Urban Indian communities throughout the State. The program aims to create a community of practice that lifts and makes available racially and culturally responsive population-based and place-based approaches for California’s most underserved communities. The program will follow two tracks – a Planning Track and an Implementation Track.

Through the program, awarded funds will support the planning or implementation of community-defined best practices (i.e., culturally validated healing practices) in substance use disorder services for Tribal and Urban Indian communities throughout the state. Funded organizations will either propose to complete a series of readiness activities and plan to develop or identify community-defined practices in their community, or for those organizations that already use community-defined best practices, will propose ways to integrate those practices into SUD and health care services.

Through the TUICDBP program, distinct goals for the Planning Track and the Implementation Track include the following.:

  1. Planning Track goal: Identify long-standing and emerging cultural practices and traditions that serve as a critical part of healing and recovery, including providers and community partners in the process. This includes starting or re-mobilizing planning efforts to integrate practices into existing SUD treatment and recovery services.
  2. Implementation Track goal: Implement community-defined traditional health practices within existing SUD treatment or recovery services.
