Program Description

The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement is to establish by cooperative agreement a National Child Welfare Capacity Building Center for Tribes (CBCT). CBCT will work collaboratively with other Children’s Bureau (CB) supported initiatives to improve child welfare systems and to support Tribes and States in achieving sustainable, systemic change that results in greater safety, permanency, and well-being for children, youth, and families. CBCT will serve as the focal point for coordinated and culturally competent training and technical assistance to title IV-B and title IV-E programs in American Indian and Alaska Native Nations. CBCT is intended to: Successfully engage Tribes and States, to be the primary provider of universal, targeted and intensive Tribal training and technical assistance; Facilitate peer-to-peer consultation between Tribes and States regarding child welfare issues; Enhance Tribal access to and utilization of CBCT support; and Increase cultural competence and sensitivity to Tribal voices in Tribal and State child welfare systems. CBCT will address the unique needs of CB-supported Tribal grantees and support intensive, culturally-responsive Tribal technical assistance projects. CBCT will build the capacities of Tribal agencies, courts, and organizations to support the successful administration of child welfare programs and increase the ability of Tribes to provide effective child welfare services. CBCT is expected to help Tribes identify and respond to their unique child welfare needs; improve Tribal child welfare practices; and help Tribes achieve greater safety, permanency, and well-being for children, youth, and families. CBCT will also promote the development and delivery of an array of culturally-appropriate services for groups of Tribal child welfare professionals and individual Tribal Nations, including tools, training, coaching, products, and tailored consultation.
