requires each Indian tribe that elects to administer and operate a TANF 
program to submit a TANF Tribal Plan. The TANF Tribal Plan is a 
mandatory statement submitted to the Secretary of HHS by the Indian 
tribe, which consists of an outline of how the Indian tribes' TANF 
program will be administered and operated. It is used by the Secretary 
to determine whether the plan is approvable and to determine that the 
Indian tribe is eligible to receive a TANF assistance grant. It is also 
made available to the public.
    Respondents: Indian tribes applying to operate a TANF program and 
to renew their Tribal Family Assistance Plan.
