Tribal Resources Directory of ACF Programs.
Administration for Children and Families (DHHS), Washington, DC.
This directory aims to provide useful information for American Indian tribes and Native American communities about programs funded by the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) that benefit tribal and other Native American service populations. Included are profiles of ACF programs that tribes and eligible Native American organizations may apply to directly, as well as ACF programs where, by law, tribes receive services through the states. Chapters are organized by funding agency: (1) Administration on Children, Youth and Families (child care, child welfare services, Head Start, runaway and homeless youth); (2) Administration for Native Americans; (3) Administration on Developmental Disabilities; (4) Office of Child Support Enforcement; (5) Office of Community Services (community economic development grants, food and nutrition, empowerment zones, family violence prevention, job opportunities, home energy assistance, Native employment preference); and (6) Office of Community Services and Office of Family Assistance (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families [TANF]). Each profile includes program purposes, funding uses, types of grants, funding levels, eligibility requirements, how to apply for funding, FY 1999 tribal grantees, and contact information. Appendices present an ACF organizational chart, regional administrators and contact information, a glossary, and a brief explanation of Public Law 102-477. (TD)
