ATTACHMENT: Tribal IV-D Tribal Checklist (147.28 KB Adobe PDF)
SUBJECT: Moving from Start-up to a Comprehensive Program: A Tool for Submitting an Application
Our regulations at 45 CFR 309.65(a) require an application to operate a comprehensive Tribal IV-D program. We previously issued IM-05-06, Building a Tribal IV-D Program: A Guide to the Start-Up Application Process, and PIQT-07-01, Moving from a Start-up Program to a Comprehensive Tribal IV-D Program, to aide those submitting Tribal IV-D program applications.
The enclosed checklist is a tool intended to help Tribal IV-D programs in the start-up phase ensure that they have included necessary documentation of compliance with requirements 45 CFR 309.65(a) in an application to move to a comprehensive IV-D program. This is intended to compliment the two issuances referenced above.
Please note that this checklist is not required by the regulations at 45 CFR Part 309, and it is not a substitute for the details contained in the Federal regulations in 45 CFR Part 309.
Any questions should be directed to the appropriate Regional Program Manager.
