ACF 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 Tuesday, December 6, 2005, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Wyndham Hotel. This event precedes the ACF National Native American Conference to be held December 7-9, 2005, at the Palm Springs Convention Center.
The intent of this Consultation Session is for ACF officials to hear firsthand from Tribal leaders and representatives from Tribal organizations and Native non-profits about the implementation of ACF programs in Native communities. Of particular interest are the challenges that Tribes and Tribal organizations face in accessing ACF program funding and using programmatic 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.
