State of Michigan Child Care Program

Child Care Program provides foster care services to those that are not Title IV-E eligible under DHS guidelines for Title IV – E eligibility.

The four tribes who request this assistance include: Bay Mills Indian Community, Lac Vieux Desert Indian Community, Little Traverse Bay Bands Indian Community, and Pokagon Band.

Inter-Tribal Council of Michigan, Inc. will provide foster care and special needs payments on an as needed basis. Direct payments are made to placements upon receipt of court issued orders, from the tribal courts whom will retain custody of the child(ren), and designate care and supervision to the appropriate social services personnel.
