The Association of American Indian Physicians (AAIP) is pleased to announce the 2014 funding opportunity Capacity Building Assistance: Implementation of Strategies in Tribal Health Departments Focusing on Healthy, Active Native Communities. AAIP’s mission is to support innovative, culturally sensitive, effective approaches to prevent obesity and improve nutrition and physical activity in American Indian communities. Funding opportunities are available to Tribal Health Departments that use the monies to adapt and implement the CDC Winnable Battles Strategies and/or The Guide to Community Preventive Services ‘Recommended Strategies’ to engage their community in improving health. (**Refer to list of allowable strategies at end of document). AAIP intends to fund proposals that result in environmental, systematic, and/or policy change so that the results are sustainable, rather than one-time events.

THREE funding opportunities will be awarded at $5,000 each.
