Good afternoon directors,
I am sending in proposals for ACF’s 2020 Native American Grantee Meeting workshops. This biannual meeting is in February in DC. It will be held in conjunction with NCSEA’s Policy Forum.
Does anyone have have session suggestions? This meeting typically doesn’t have much of a child support component to the agenda, but the commissioner is wanting to change that! I agree and am excited to be in the room with multiple ACF programs.
If you’ve known me for more than a minute you know I’m very passionate about breaking down the silos between our programs to better serve our families. For the most part, our programs are all serving the same clients, if we worked together more collaboratively we could serve them in a more holistic manner. On paper at the federal level they encourage us to do this but they certainly are not modeling it.
What are you seeing in your communities? What is lacking? What is working?
Post your suggestions here ASAP, submissions are due tomorrow.
The theme is Growing Healthy Communities 2020-ACF-NA-Grantee-Meeting—Call-for-Workshop-Proposals
Kind regards, Aimee
