Welcome to the NATCSD website!

The National Association of Tribal Child Support Directors (NATCSD) was established in 2006 as an association with the purpose of assisting directors of tribal child support programs with the everyday problems, and questions that arise from operating a tribal child support program so that they may do a better job in providing the needed services to tribal children and their families.


Tribal Directors met with the Commissioner in October 2016.

Each tribal program is unique in its own way, and has different procedures, and ways of operating their program. The NATCSD brings the directors together to discuss these different ideas, and share them with each other to help improve our programs, and improve the services we provide to our children, while building relationships with other tribes.
