Special Diabetes Program for Indians (SDPI)

In response to the diabetes epidemic among American Indians and Alaska Natives, Congress established the SDPI grant programs in 1997. This $150 million annual grant program, coordinated by IHS Division of Diabetes with guidance from the Tribal Leaders Diabetes Committee, provides funds for diabetes treatment and prevention to IHS, Tribal, and Urban Indian health programs across the United States.
