ACF Webinar for Native Communities Receiving Cobell Settlement Payments
Protecting Your Financial Health
ACF hosted a webinar for Tribal grantees to learn about some of the various financial protection tools available for individuals, organizations, and Tribes. The webinar was ACF's response to questions from Native communities regarding how payments from the Cobell Settlement might affect the eligibility of participants in their ACF-funded programs. Representatives from the National Congress of American Indians, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Office of Family Assistance, Office of Community Services, and Administration for Native Americans were on hand to answer questions, as well as provide guidance on how the settlement payments may impact ACF programs.
