California Interagency Council on Homelessness (Cal ICH) Tribal Consultation Request
Federally Recognized Tribes are sovereign nations, with the inherent authority to govern themselves and engage in government-to-government relationships with federal and state governments.
Through Governor Brown’s Executive Order B-10-11, and Governor Newsom’s Executive Order N-15-19, the State of California has acknowledged the state’s obligation to ensure its policies and programs consider the needs of tribal communities.
Cal ICH values the input and wisdom received from tribal governments for the development of legislation, regulations, rules and policies on matters that may affect tribal communities. Cal ICH’s tribal consultation guidelines can be found within the Business Consumer Services and Housing Agencies’ Tribal Consultation Policy.
Current Tribal Consultation Opportunity
Cal ICH is requesting tribal consultation from California Tribes and their designees from October 4, 2023 – November 1, 2023, regarding recommendations made by the State Funding & Programs Workgroup that could impact data collection in state homelessness programs.
