From fiscal year 1997 to fiscal year 2009, the National Indian Child Welfare Association (NICWA) has collaborated with Center for Mental Health Services of the Substance Abuse Mental Health Service Administration, the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention of the U.S. Department of Justice, and Indian Health Service through a contract to provide technical assistance to tribal/urban recipients of both the Circles of Care grant program and Systems of Care implementation grants. This cooperative effort is sometimes referred to as the Indian Children's Mental Health Initiative.
