The California Tribal TANF Partnership (CTTP) is associated with 35 tribes and other organizations that operate tribal TANF programs for Native American people. CTTP was established on July 8, 2003 and remains operational under the governing body Robinson Rancheria of Pomo Indians as lead administrators.
Our goal and purpose is to provide educational training, career and employment opportunities toward self-sufficiency; through various supported services and programs with temporary financial assistance.

CTTP continually seeks to add more partners to the consortium and to extend temporary assistance and programs to more Native Americans in need. The goal of the organization is to help families achieve self-sufficiency.
The Four Purposes of Tribal TANF
- To provide assistance to Native American families in need so that their children may be cared for in their own homes.
- End dependency of government benefits through promoting education, career development and employment preparation.
- Reduce and prevent out-of-wedlock pregnancy
- Encourage healthy formation and support two-parent families.
“To enhance and guide native participants through a path of education, wellness, harmonious families, and cultural awareness. We strive to help them become independent and to provide a better future for themselves and their families with respect, honor and integrity.”
“To strengthen our native participant's quest to lead fulfilled lives by confirming the wisdom and spirituality rooted within their culture and traditions. We strive to offer quality services to native people with respect and accountability by practicing and encouraging tolerance, recognition and support of cultural, individual and community needs.”
