Nationwide one in every 475 Native Americans has died from Covid since the start of the pandemic, compared with one in every 825 white Americans and one in every 645 Black Americans.

Recently, 26 House Representatives called on Congressional leaders to prioritize expanding resources for urban American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/AN) in the COVID-19 budget reconciliation. At a critical time when AI/ANs are dying at alarming rates from COVID-19, the federal government must do more to fulfill its trust and treaty obligations to serve this population. The letter specifically asks for Congress to include a fix that will provide parity for Urban Indian Organizations (UIOs) and provide significant cost savings to cash-strapped states.

On February 3, Senator Cortez-Masto urged the Senate to pass the Urban Indian Health Parity Act to shore up resources for urban Indian organizations.

Today, more than 70% of American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/ANs) live in urban areas, as compared with 45% in 1970 and 8% in 1940. They have unique health needs, and the National Council of Urban Indian Health (NCUIH) is the only national organization devoted to supporting the resiliency of our nation’s AI/AN community living in cities and developing quality, accessible and culturally competent health services. In a new video, the NCUIH details how most American Indians and Alaska Natives came to live in urban settings.

The new Administration will bolster support for Tribal Nations and Urban Indian Health Programs (UIHPs) by affirming the ability and building the capacity of the Indian Health Service (IHS), Tribes, Bureau of Indian Education (BIE) schools, and UIHPs to provide vaccines for Native communities. The federal government will take all available steps to strengthen distribution and ordering for Tribes and Urban Indian Health Providers. President Biden has called on Congress to provide additional funds to IHS to support expanded health services, address lost revenues, and support testing and vaccination efforts.

General information

Urban Indian Health Programs (UIHP) provide culturally competent, non-duplicative health services to more than 150,000 people annually and are critical to the Indian health care delivery system. The 36 clinics and programs across the United States are a critical safety net for Indian people living in urban centers. Todays Urban Indians are descendants of those tribal people who were relocated in the 1950s as part of the federal relocation program established by the Bureau of Indian Affairs. Congress has consistently acknowledged the government's trust responsibility extends to American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/AN) living in urban settings. A Senate report relating to the Indian Health Care Amendments of 1987 noted: The responsibility for the provision of health care, arising from treaties and laws in exchange for the cession of millions of acres of Indian land does not end at the borders of an Indian reservation. We thank all of our supporters for recognizing that: •UIHPs overcome cultural barriers •UIHPs save costs and improve medical care by getting Urban Indians to seek medical attention earlier •UIHPs reduce costs to other parts of the Indian Health Service by reducing their patient load •UIHPs are a key provider to many uninsured urban Indians who may not go elsewhere for health care services
