Draft Agenda

To help both you and the ACF representatives prepare for this consultation, ACF held planning calls to identify individuals who will provide oral testimony to ACF and identify specific topics of interest for discussion. 

Testimony

If your tribe would like to submit testimony before the consultation, please do so no later than Monday, June 1, 2020 to: ANACommissioner@acf.hhs.gov. This will provide sufficient time for ACF to share your testimony with our program offices so they are prepared to discuss your issues.

However, this deadline does not preclude anyone from providing testimony during the session and we will, to the extent that time allows, hear your testimony. If you would like to testify orally, we ask that you indicate that in your registration and which program office(s) or topic(s) you would like to address so we can more easily identify speakers during the virtual consultation.

If you are unable to submit your testimony before the consultation session, please be aware that ACF will also keep the testimony record open for 30 days after the date of the consultation. After that time, ACF will provide written responses to all testimonies received. Testimonies may be submitted to ANACommissioner@acf.hhs.gov.

For More Information

If you have any questions about the consultation session, contact the Administration for Native Americans at anacomments@acf.hhs.gov or 1-877-922-9262.
