The Administration (DOI, HHS, and DOJ) are asking for input on the following:
What additional supports would Tribal leaders find helpful to build their Tribe’s capacity to exercise their rights and responsibilities under ICWA?
Are there specific supports you believe the federal government could provide to help state courts and child welfare agencies meet their obligations under ICW A?
In your experience, are there specific aspects or requirements of ICWA where state courts and agencies need to build greater understanding or capacity?
Are there existing State-Tribe collaborative partnerships or processes that you believe have helped support effective implementation ofICWA?
