California Tribal TANF Partnership
- Nonprofit Organizations
The California Tribal TANF Partnership (CTTP) is associated with 20 tribes and other organizations that operate tribal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) programs for Native American people. CTTP was established on July 8, 2003 and remains operational under the governing body Robinson Rancheria of Pomo Indians as lead administrators.
Our goal and purpose is to help families achieve self-sufficiency through educational training, career and employment opportunities, as well as various supported services and programs with temporary financial assistance.
CTTP continually seeks to add more partners to the consortium and to extend temporary assistance and programs to more Native Americans in need.
