Tribal Consultation Sessions

The Office of Head Start (OHS) convenes Tribal Consultation sessions as required by Section 640(1)(4) of the Head Start Act and in conformity with the Department of Health and Human Services Tribal Consultation Policy. The consultations provide a forum for discussing how to better meet the needs of American Indian and Alaska Native children and families. Tribal Consultation reports reflect comments and recommendations raised by tribal leaders and their representatives; comments and responses from OHS; and areas identified at the Tribal Consultations as requiring follow up by OHS.
