Capacity Building Center for Tribes
TLPI is a major partner in the Capacity Building Center for Tribes. The Center for Tribes is a cooperative agreement between the Federal Children's Bureau and the Butler Institute for Families, at the University of Denver. The Center for Tribes is comprised of four organizations (DU, TLPI, University of Southern Maine, Westat), each with experience working with tribal and state partners designing, delivering and evaluating technical assistance and capacity building services in Indian country. TLPI is a major partner in the Capacity Building Center for Tribes and provides the Center with significant Tribal child welfare expertise, including highly experienced staff, a pool of consultants, and a National Advisory Committee.
This project provides capacity building assistance with American Indian and Alaska Native Nations to help strengthen the child and family systems of Native nations in order to nurture the safety, permanency, and well-being of Native children, youth, and families.
