The National Institute of General Medical Sciences in conjunction with multiple NIH Institutes, Centers, and Offices (ICOs) have partnered with Indian Health Service (IHS) to support the Native American Research Centers for Health (NARCH). The NARCH program supports opportunities for conducting research and career enrichment to meet health needs prioritized by American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) tribes or tribally based organizations. It aims:
NARCH Awards Promote:
NARCH grant applications are submitted by and awarded to the tribe or tribal organization. Awarding the grant directly to the tribe or tribal organization allows for the community to dictate and oversee research priorities, while drawing upon necessary expertise from the research community to accomplish its scientific goals. Due to the complexity of the NARCH awards, NIH and the IHS work closely to support this program. NIH oversees funding and management of NARCH grants, while IHS oversees interactions with the tribal organizations and provides guidance involving human subjects research. NIGMS primarily funds faculty development, student research training, and capacity building activities of each awarded NARCH, while NIH ICOs support activities within the purview of the ICO’s strategic goals.
Beginning in CY20, NIGMS conducted an evaluation of the Native American Research Centers for Health (NARCH) program to ensure that it continues to optimally meet the health, education, and training needs identified and prioritized by American Indian/Alaskan Native (AI/AN) communities. As part of this evaluation, NIGMS initiated and held a formal Tribal Consultation [PDF] to solicit input and feedback from Tribal Leaders, Tribal Nations, and Tribal Organizations on matters related to the evaluation. A Tribal Consultation report containing feedback obtained through this consultation process is posted here and on the NIGMS Evaluations webpage. Contents of this report were also presented to the National Advisory General Medical Sciences Council at its September 2021 meeting.
