The Indian Health Board of Minneapolis is a community health center established in 1971 to serve the urban American Indian population of Minneapolis. Our application for funding to continue our programming under the Bureau of Primary Healthcare Community Health Center Section 330 funding will allow us to see our targeted number of unduplicated patients (5,290) patient per year in our Medical, Dental and Counseling and Support Clinics.
Our clinic is located at 1315 East 24th Street, Minneapolis, MN 55404 in the Phillips neighborhood of Minneapolis. The entire Phillips community is a federally designated Medically Underserved Area. The mission of the Indian Health Board of Minneapolis (IHB) is to ensure access to quality healthcare services for American Indian and other people in the community and to promote health education and wellness. We are a Community Health Center that serves as a medical home for many of our patients. Patients are able to access many services all under one roof at Indian Health Board.
IHB is applying for Community Opioid Intervention Pilot Project Funding to promote community awareness of Opioid prevention and treatment resources, expand MAT services, and enhance recovery support services for patients on MAT and their families.
