CHAP Tribal Assessment and Planning Grant Program

The CHAP TAP grant application period has now closed.

The CHAP Tribal Assessment and Planning (TAP) grant aims to support the assessment and planning of Tribes and Tribal Organizations (T/TO) in determining the feasibility of implementing CHAP in their respective communities. The program is designed to support the regional flexibility required for T/TO to design a program unique to the needs of their individual communities across the country through the identification of feasibility factors. The focus of the program is to:

  • Assess whether the T/TO can integrate CHAP into the Tribal health system, including the health care workforce
  • Identify systemic barriers that prohibit the complete integration of CHAP into an existing health care system. The barriers should be related to:
    • Clinical infrastructure
    • Workforce barriers
    • Certification of providers
    • Training of providers
    • Inclusion of culture in the services provided by a CHAP provider
  • Plan partnerships across the T/TO geographic region to address the barriers, including reimbursement, training, education, clinical infrastructure, implementation cost, and determination of system integration
