- To improve case management for families eligible for assistance from a Tribal TANF program. Case management could be improved in a few ways by coordinating across TANF and child welfare programs.
- To provide supportive services and assistance to tribal children in out-of-home placements and the tribal families caring for such children, including families who adopt such children. Coordination may be required for supportive services. For example, a tribe may look for supportive services provided by programs beyond TANF or the child welfare system, in which case a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) may need to be established to formalize the connection and outline the roles and responsibilities of the various partners. Potential partners may include home visiting programs, child care programs or programs providing employment-related activities and services.
- To provide prevention services and assistance to tribal families at risk of child abuse and neglect. Coordination may be needed to improve prevention services and assistance. For example, a tribe may want to develop a tool to gauge a child’s immediate safety and risk of future maltreatment.
- Improving internal processes, data, and interoperability to strengthen coordination of the TANF and child welfare programs. In addition to the examples given above, tribes may initiate efforts to strengthen the coordination of TANF and child welfare programs in other ways.
