September 9 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am CDT
The 2023 Special Diabetes Program for Indians (SDPI) Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) was released on July 29, 2022. Since the inception of SDPI in 1998, USET had served as a primary grantee in which most of the funding was passed through to twenty Tribal Nation sub-recipients. Beginning with the new 2023 open competition SDPI grant cycle, USET will no longer be eligible to apply as a primary grantee. However, all federally recognized Tribal Nations, Urban Indian Health Programs and Indian Health Service operated facilities will be permitted to apply for the funding. A summary of eligibility is as follows:
- An Indian health program operated by Tribal Nation or Tribal organization pursuant to a contract, grant, cooperative agreement, or compact with the Indian Health Service (IHS) pursuant to the Indian Self-Determination and Education Assistance Act [25 U.S.C. 5321 et seq.].
- An urban Indian health program operated by an urban Indian Organization pursuant to a grant or contract with the Indian Health Service pursuant to title V of the Indian Health Care Improvement Act [25 U.S.C. 1651 et seq.].

In preparation, the USET Tribal Health Program Support will hold a virtual training on September 9, 2022, 10:30 am – 11:30 am Central/11:30 am – 12:30 pm Eastern to brief all interested Federally Recognized Tribal Nations in the IHS Nashville Area about the new 2023 5-year grant cycle.
What is the SDPI Program?
SDPI is a $150 million per year program that provides awards for diabetes treatment and prevention services. The IHS administers SDPI with programmatic oversight provided by the IHS Division of Diabetes Treatment and Prevention (DDTP).
The purpose of this program is to provide diabetes treatment and/or prevention activities and/or services (also referred to as “activities/services”) for AI/AN communities. Awardees will implement one SDPI Diabetes Best Practice (also referred to as “Best Practice”) and report data on the Best Practice’s Required Key Measure (RKM). Awardees may also implement other activities/services based on diabetes-related community needs and develop an evaluation plan. Activities/services will be aimed at reducing the risk of diabetes in at-risk individuals, providing high quality care to those with diagnosed diabetes, and/or reducing the complications of diabetes.
