Tribal Events Calendar

DCF works with the Wisconsin Tribes on various topic specific areas such as Indian Child Welfare, Child Care, Child Support, and Family Service Programming. In order to maintain open dialogue and communication, state-tribal workgroups and committees meet throughout the year to exchange information and collaborate on new policies and initiatives.

Events include:
