Overview of Urban Indian Organizations (UIOs)

Urban Indian Organizations (UIOs), were created in 1972 following the Termination Era by Congress to fulfill the federal government’s healthcare-related trust responsibility for Indians who live off the reservations, and they are managed by an Executive Director and a Board of Directors. UIOs are represented by the National Council of Urban Indian Health (NCUIH), which is the only national 501(c)(3), membership-based organization devoted to the development of quality, accessible, and culturally sensitive health care programs for AI/AN living in urban communities.
