Mission

To raise the physical, mental, social, and spiritual health of American Indians and Alaska Natives to the highest level.

Organization

The Indian Health Service (IHS) provides a comprehensive health services delivery system for American Indians and Alaska Natives with opportunity for maximum tribal involvement in developing and managing programs to meet their health needs. IHS serves a population of approximately 2.1 million American Indians and Alaska Natives who belong to more than 566 federally recognized tribes in 35 states.

The IHS goal is to ensure that comprehensive, culturally acceptable personal and public health services are available and accessible to all American Indian and Alaska Native people. The foundation of IHS is to uphold the federal government obligation to promote healthy American Indian and Alaska Native people, communities, and cultures and to honor and protect the inherent sovereign rights of tribes.

IHS awarded over $1.8 billion in comprehensive health services to American Indian and Alaska Native people.

The IHS manages Discretionary and “Compact” awards. Compacts are written agreements consistent with the federal government’s trust responsibility, treaty obligations, and the government-to-government relationship between Indian tribes and the United States and may only be amended by mutual agreement of the parties. Compacts are usually awarded with an “indefinite term” per the Indian Self-Determination and Education Assistance under Title V of the statute and therefore intended to be in place in perpetuity. Funding Agreements associated with Title V compacts identify the Programs, Functions, Services, and Activities (PFSAs) or portions thereof that will be assumed by a tribe or tribal organization and the funding that is related to those PFSAs. Each tribe has a sole right to its share of IHS PFSAs. Each tribe chooses whether to receive the funding and each tribe controls the timing of the funding agreement and the retention of the ongoing responsibility for so long as permitted by federal law or until terminated by mutual written agreement, retrocession, or resumption.

Treemap

A treemap is a chart resembling the concentric circles of a “tree trunk,” that compares FY 2013 and FY 2012 non-discretionary grant program awards by Grantee Type, Grantee Class and Award activity, and displays grant information in several ways.It shows the number of dollars awarded for a type of grant in a fiscal year, the proportion of dollar awards for the type of grant in the current fiscal year, and how much the award dollar value changed from the previous fiscal year.

Closed-ended entitlement program - A type of non- discretionary grant program where the award amount constitutes an upper limit on the amount of funds the federal government may pay for allowable programmatic activities.

Open-ended entitlement program - A type of non- discretionary grant program where, based on compliance with programmatic requirements, e.g., provision of specified services to eligible beneficiaries, the OPDIV is required to reimburse the recipient (generally a state) for all or a portion of eligible costs and there is no upper limit on the amount of funds the federal government will pay for allowable services and activities (as specified in the governing statute and implementing regulations).
