Grantees and Awardees
In September 2023, IHS announced eight new tribal and urban Indian health clinics and systems awards to develop models incorporating comprehensive approaches to care and service for people living with dementia and their caregivers. Total funding for both years of the 2-year grants is estimated at $3 million.
