The National Resource Center for Tribes (NRC4Tribes) will be guided in its daily work by the NRC4Tribes Leadership Team, comprised of Tribal Law and Policy Institute and its partner agencies. In addition, a National Advisory Council, comprised of tribal child welfare professionals, tribal leaders, and community stakeholders will review plans and activities of the NRC4Tribes and the larger T&TA Network, provide recommendations regarding the Networks approach to serving Title IV-B funded tribal child welfare systems and improving practices with American Indians and Alaska Native children and families.

Implementation of the NRC4Tribes work will, through a Systems of Care framework, include engaging, assessing, informing and supporting culturally appropriate Tribal child welfare services nationwide to implement strategies for improving the quality and effectiveness of services for American Indian and Alaska Native children, youth, and families leading to increased safety, permanency, and well being for children.
