SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On September 29, 2010, ACF held its first Tribal Consultation Session in 5 years. The purpose of that session was to receive input to ACF's draft Tribal Consultation Policy and ACF has been working hard to finalize that policy. ACF Principals will once again be available to speak with tribal leaders to discuss issues important to the tribes. This year's session will focus on ACF tribal program priorities and will include a listening session on tribal self-governance. Testimonies may be submitted no later than August 5, 2011, to: Lillian Sparks, Commissioner, Administration for Native Americans, 370 L'Enfant Promenade, SW., Washington, DC 20447, anacommissioner@acf.hhs.gov.

In addition to the Tribal Consultation Session, ACF will be hosting a Tribal Training and Technical Assistance Day to provide information about ACF programs, the grants process and financial management, technical assistance available from ACF, and ACF's Interoperability Innovation Initiative. The Tribal Training and Technical Assistance Day will take place on August 17, 2011, at the same address as the Tribal Consultation Session, listed above.
