SUBJECT: Tribal Budget and Narrative Justification Templates – expire June 2023
The Office of Management and Budget has approved two optional Tribal Budget and Narrative Justification Template forms (OMB Number 0970-0548). These forms expire on June 30, 2023.
To receive child support funding under 45 CFR Part 309, tribes and tribal organizations must submit the financial forms described in 45 CFR 309.130(b) and other forms, as the Secretary may designate, no later than August 1. The templates are existing optional forms tribes may use to prepare their annual budget and narrative justification estimates in accordance with tribal child support enforcement regulations. The optional templates were designed to improve efficiency and establish uniformity and consistency in the annual budget submission and review process. Nothing has been changed in these forms since last year. Tribes operating an approved tribal child support enforcement program may use the Excel or Word version of the templates.
ACTION REQUIRED: None – optional use.
