California Tribal TANF Partnership (CTTP) is a collective of various sovereign Northern California Tribal nations offering Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) in approximately fifteen (15) counties in Northern California, and is governed by the Robinson Rancheria Citizen Business Council.
The goal of the CTTP Program is to provide temporary assistance and services to Native Families while developing strategies to establish long term self-sufficiency for each family. The nature and Spirit of the CTTP Program is to provide services to Native families that promote and stimulate their economic growth while recognizing and incorporating cultural identities as well as customs.
CTTP is funded by Federal and State grants under the Administration for Children and Families. As such, these Requests are subject to Section 7(b) of the Indian Self Determination & Education Act (25 UCS 450 e (b)) which provides to the greatest extent feasible, preference and opportunities be given to Indians and Indian owned business enterprises, and ACF C.F.R.
