DFPS initiated quarterly meetings with representatives of the three federally recognized tribes in Texas in October 2009 to share information and discuss collaboration building efforts, as well as provide an opportunity to articulate coordination and technical assistance needs.  Meeting discussions have included further efforts for completion of Tribal State agreements and new opportunities for Tribes created with the Fostering Connections to Success and Increasing Adoptions Act.  DFPS has met individually with each tribe wishing to establish a tribal State agreement. Individual meetings regarding Title IV-E State agreements have been held with interested Tribes.  DFPS is currently working on a Title IV-E agreement with the Alabama-Coushatta Tribe of Texas.
