Presented by Administration for Children and Families (ACF), Region 10, National Center on Substance Abuse and Child Welfare (NCSACW), and National Indian Child Welfare Association (NICWA)

The panel presentation involves representatives from two tribes who are currently working to create system-wide linkages between their Tribal community and State or county level departments of child welfare services and substance abuse treatment services.
