IHS, Tribal, and Urban Indian LTSS Programs Database

The ITU database is a listing of Indian Health Service, tribally operated, or urban Indian health programs (ITUs) that offer any type of long-term services and supports (LTSS)—a variety of services for elders and people with disabilities.

This database offers a view of LTSS available through ITUs nationally, and is also a place to find a specific program based on location or a certain service offered. Information in the ITU LTSS Program database is collected and updated by a team of researchers on an ongoing basis.

If you have updated information that should be included in the database, please let us know.

LTSS in Indian Country – By the Numbers

The database includes 400+ organizations in Indian Country that provide LTSS care. This includes a vast array of clinics and facilities, including urban Indian health organizations, nursing homes, senior centers, adult day programs, nutrition programs, hospice, social service and program offices, and more. Of the organizations, 260+ are Title VI grantees. Programs offering LTSS care are shown on the map below.

LTSS care can include a wide variety of medical, personal, and social services. Researchers identified 29 different care types under the broad category of “long-term services and supports.” The bar graph below shows these care types and the number of organizations that offer each kind.

Map of IHS, Tribal, and Urban LTSS Programs

This interactive map shows the programs that offer LTSS care.

  • The list below the map shows information for the visible points on the map.
  • Zoom in or out to change the map’s area, and the list will filter to show only the visible points.
  • Click a point on the map or a row in the list to see the “full record” for that program under the list.
  • Most programs have a contact person, address, website, phone, fax, and email.

Pick a service from the dropdown menu, and the map will filter to show only programs that offer that service. Pick “All Programs” from the dropdown to go back to the full list of ITU LTSS programs.

Disclaimer: Each tribe, intertribal organization, or other organization listed has their own policy on who they serve and whether they offer services to nontribal members. This varies from program to program.

Many Types of LTSS Care

This interactive graph shows the most common types of LTSS care provided by ITUs. The bar graph below shows these care types and the number of organizations that offer each kind.

Many tribal health organizations also refer patients to other organizations to receive LTSS care when the tribes themselves do not provide the specifically needed services. Referred services are not included in the database.
