The Administration for Children and Families would like to invite Tribal leaders to participate in a formal consultation Session with ACF senior officials and program directors. The Consultation Session will take place Monday, September 20, 2004 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in Rayburn House Office Building Room B-339.
The intent of this Consultation Session is to allow ACF officials to hear first hand from Tribal leaders and representatives of Tribal organizations and Native Americans non-profit organizations about the implementation of ACF programs in Native Americans communities. Of particular interest are the challenges that Tribes and Tribal organizations face in accessing ACF program funding and using program funding to support social and economic development activities in Native American communities. ACF offices such as the Administration for Native Americans, Office of Child Support Enforcement, Office of Community Services, Office of Family Assistance, Child Care Bureau, Children's Bureau, Head Start Bureau, and the Family and Youth Services Bureau will be represented.
Because of the limited time, ACF has collaborated with Master Key Consulting to plan and facilitate the session. Master Key Consulting will be responsible for coordinating the stakeholders who wish to participate in the Consultation Session and will work with a planning committee to develop a structured agenda, identifying key issues to be raised and spokespersons to present testimony on the issues.Start Signature
