Start Preamble

Title: Implementation of Promoting Safe and Stable Families by Indian Tribes.

OMB No.: New Collection.

Description: The purpose of this study is to examine the ways in which Indian Tribes used funds they received under Start Printed Page 46194title IV-B subpart 2 to provide services that strengthen families' ability to care for their children. Additionally, a broad range of related child welfare issues with respect to Indian Tribes will be explored. Consistent with this approach, the research framework for this study documents and analyzes a full range of implementation issues for Promoting Safe and Stable Families (PSSF)—planning; accomplishments and changes; organization and infrastructure; related services and practices; and resource uses and allocation—over time and across various stakeholders involved. This study also provides a historical perspective on Tribal implementation of the PSSF legislation, including recent emphasis on strengthening parental relationships and promoting healthy marriages.

Respondents: Tribal Leaders; Program Managers for title IV-B, subpart 1 and 2 and Front Line Workers for title IV-B, subpart 1 and 2; Child Welfare/Human Service Collaborators; Funding Officials; and Court Officials.
