Hoeven Announces More Than $200K Grant for UND Indians Into Psychology Program

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven today announced that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Indian Health Services has awarded a grant totaling $238,359 to the University of North Dakota (UND) for the school’s Indians into Psychology (INPSYDE) Program.

“The University of North Dakota’s Indians into Psychology Program is making important strides in providing Native Americans with better access to mental health services,” said Hoeven. “This new grant for UND’s program will help further the important work the school is doing to ensure native peoples have ready access to quality medical care, including mental health services.”

UND’s INPSYDE Program is part of the Indian Health Care Improvement Act of 1992. UND’s program strives to provide more mental health services and mental health professionals to underserved Native American populations in the Upper Midwest.

As a member of the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee, Senator Hoeven is working to support programs through annual appropriations bills that address the needs of Native Americans.
