Dear Tribal Officials,
I am writing to ask your assistance to identify and rank what you believe are the five top health budget priorities for IHS in California. Your completed response ensures Tribal and Urban Indian health Program input to begin the IHS budget formulation process for fiscal year (FY) 2015.
Attached is a ballot for you to use to rank your five top FY 2015 health budget priorities. Specifically, California Area Office (CAO)/IHS will collect the ballots, tally the results and use the most highly identified priorities as California’s five top priorities during the Area budget formulation session scheduled November 15 at the Holiday Inn Capitol Plaza in Sacramento. The California budget formulation Tribal representatives (Stacy Dixon and Leslie Lohse) will also have the five top health budget priorities to use when advocating for California at the National budget formulation session scheduled during February 2013.
At the bottom of the ballot, please remember to print the name of the Tribal Government you represent and include a signature either as Chairperson or designee for the ballot to be included in the tally. Only one ballot per Tribal Government will be accepted.

You may fax or email the completed ballot by November 2 to Mr. Travis Coleman, Acting Indian Self Determination Program Manager, CAO/IHS. Mr. Coleman’s contact information is:
I would like to thank you in advance for your participation. Should you have any questions related to the ballot, you may contact Mr. Coleman 916-930-3981.
