ATTACHMENT: Arrears Management: Practical Resource Guide

TO: ALL STATE AND TRIBAL IV-D DIRECTORS

SUBJECT: Release of Arrears Management: Practical Resource Guide

BACKGROUND:

I am pleased to present you with this document to help you combat arrears: Arrears Management: Practical Resource Guide. The material is designed to provide you with easy access to information related to all aspects of arrears management and prevention.

The Arrears Management: Practical Resource Guide is arranged in two parts. Part I organizes research material in broad categories of arrears management and analysis, order establishment, prevention of arrears, early intervention, management of accrued arrears, and policy and legal considerations. Part II contains abstracts of over 30 grants on these subjects.

This material can serve as a resource, as States and Tribes continually reassess their child support procedures and policies in an effort to maximize performance levels. I hope that you find this document useful in this regard.

INQUIRIES: If you have any questions, please contact Mr. John Langrock, Program Specialist, Division of State, Tribal, and Local Assistance, at (202) 401-4842 or e-mail at John.Langrock@acf.hhs.gov

Sincerely,

Margot Bean
Commissioner
