Injury Prevention

Unintentional injuries are the leading cause of death for Native Americans ages 1-44.

Since 2000, the CRIHB Injury Prevention program has successfully obtained numerous grants to fund activities such as providing Child Passenger Safety (CPS) certification courses, teen DUI campaigns, bike helmet campaigns, IHS Injury Prevention trainings, car seat distribution programs, and a mini-grant program.

We will continually seek funding that will increase injury prevention and awareness efforts on tribal lands.

Trainings and technical assistance are available through CRIHB.
