Standing Announcement for Tribal Title IV-E Plan Development Grants - These grants are funded via a standing funding opportunity announcement (SFOA), which means that the same announcement (with minor modifications) is published each year. To view published and archived SFOAs, visit Grants.gov Visit disclaimer page . Each year a new group of Tribal Title IV-E Plan Development grants is awarded. Information about which applicants received awards can be found on the Children's Bureau website.
The purpose of the Standing Announcement for Tribal Title IV-E Plan Development Grants is to make one-time grants to tribes, tribal organizations, or tribal consortia that are seeking to develop and, within 24 months of grant receipt, submit to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services a plan to implement a title IV-E foster care, adoption assistance, and, at tribal option, guardianship assistance program. Grant funds under this announcement may be used for the cost of developing a title IV-E plan under section 471 of the Social Security Act (the Act) to carry out a program under section 479B of the Act. The grant may be used for costs relating to the development of data-collection systems, a cost-allocation methodology, agency and tribal court procedures necessary to meet the case-review system requirements under Section 475(5) of the Act, or any other costs attributable to meeting any other requirement necessary for approval of a title IV-E plan.
