    Description: A title IV-E plan is required by section 471, part IV-
E of the Social Security Act (the Act) for each public child welfare 
agency requesting Federal funding for foster care, adoption assistance 
and guardianship assistance under the Act. Section 479B of the Act 
provides for an Indian tribe, tribal organization or tribal consortium 
(Tribe) to operate a title IV-E program in the same manner as a State 
with minimal exceptions. The Tribe must have an approved title IV-E 
Plan. The title IV-E plan provides assurances the programs will be 
administered in conformity with the specific requirements stipulated in 
title IV-E. The plan must include all applicable State or Tribal 
statutory, regulatory, or policy references and citations for each 
requirement as well as supporting documentation. A title IV-E agency 
may use the pre-print format prepared by the Children's Bureau of the 
Administration for Children and Families or a different format, on the 
condition that the format used includes all of the title IV-E plan 
requirements of the law.
    Respondents: Title IV-E agencies administering or supervising the 
administration of the title IV-E programs.
