INSTRUCTION FOR COMPLETION OF FORM ACF-196T
(Tribal TANF Financial Report)
Financial Reporting Form for the Tribal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) Program
Tribal grantees are required to complete and submit this report in accordance with these instructions on behalf of the Tribal Lead Agency administering the TANF program.
Tribal Lead Agencies whose program is funded directly from ACF (the Administration for Children and Families) have the option of submitting the form ACF-196T either electronically through Online Data Collection (OLDC) or by mailing the completed form and copies. ACF encourages grantees to use OLDC since it reduces paperwork, allows for quicker processing, automatically completes required calculations, and checks for data entry errors.
Note: Tribal TANF grantees operating an approved demonstration under PL 102-477 are not required to submit the ACF-196T. These grantees must adhere to the TANF financial reporting requirements issued by the Department of Interior. See the report and instructions associated with OMB Control No. 1076-0135, expiration date 09/30/2010.
