ACF, SAMHSA and HRSA Regional Administrators visit with Maine Tribal Chiefs

ACF Regional Administrator Mary Ann Higgins, SAMHSA Regional Administrator Kathryn Power, and HRSA Regional Administrator Jeff Reck made a joint visit to 5 Tribal Chiefs in Maine the week of July 16.   The trip offered a unique opportunity to talk about both health and human service issues and opportunities with the Tribal Chiefs in their communities.  The Tribal Chiefs talked about their efforts to improve outcomes for Tribal members in areas such as health care, housing, employment, and life expectancy.   The three HHS RA’s promised to work closely with the Tribes to access technical assistance and identify any other resources that might support the Tribal Chiefs in these efforts.
