Title IV-B of the Social Security Act is a child welfare funding stream available to federally recognized tribes, tribal organizations, and tribal consortia. This funding can enhance tribal child welfare service capacity and ties well with tribal family engagement practices.
Designed around prevention and early intervention, the two subparts of Title IV-B aim to:
- keep families together by supporting preventive intervention, alternative placements, and reunification efforts; and
- address family support, family preservation, time-limited family reunification, and adoption.
This two-page tool offers information on how tribes can access and better understand this funding stream. Already receiving Title IV-B funds? This tool can help others in your agency become more informed on the reporting requirements.
