Purpose of the Native Hawaiian Health Care Improvement Act

The Native Hawaiian Health Care Improvement Act (NHHCIA), as amended (42 U.S.C. 11701 and 11714), is a Congressional Special Initiative with the purpose of improving the provision of comprehensive disease prevention, health promotion, and primary care services to Native Hawaiians.

The NHHCIA authorizes funding opportunities for the following activities:

  • Service grant to Papa Ola Lokahi (POL) for the activities described in the NHHCIA, including the coordination of the health care programs and services provided to Native Hawaiians.
  • Service grants to the five recognized community-based Native Hawaiian Health Care Systems (NHHCS) to provide a full range of services identified by the legislation and tailored to fit the needs of their respective island communities.
