Funding Totals for Tribal Epidemiology Centers Public Health Infrastructure (TECPHI)

Tribal Epidemiology Centers Public Health Infrastructure (TECPHI) is a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) cooperative agreement that complements Indian Health Services (IHS) funding to increase Tribal Epidemiology Centers (TECs) public health capacity and infrastructure. This helps tribes and tribal organizations build data infrastructure, increase staff capacity, and establish partnerships.

TECs are organizations that serve American Indian and Alaska Native tribal and urban communities. They manage public health information systems, investigate diseases of concern, manage disease prevention and control programs, and respond to public health emergencies. TECs coordinate these activities with other public health authorities.

There are 12 TECs and one Network Coordinating Center awarded through the TECPHI program. They are listed below, including location. To visit the awardee sites, go to the TECPHI Awardees page.
