Office of Child Support Enforcement Tribal Innovation Grants
The Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) published a grant forecast for: Tribal Innovation Grants: Building Family-Centered Services. Eligibility for this grant program is open to tribal child support agencies operating comprehensive programs. Applicants will have the opportunity to compete for funds to develop and administer innovative, family-centered child support services that help parents provide reliable support for their children as they grow up. The grant forecast gives advance notice of grant funding opportunities with basic details applicants can use for planning until OCSE publishes the full funding opportunity announcement.
OCSE held two listening sessions to discuss the new Tribal Innovations grants (November and December, 2012.) The purpose of the calls was to gather feedback and learn of interests, concerns, questions and recommendations to take into consideration when developing the policies for the grant program.
