§98.83 Requirements for tribal programs.
(a) The grantee shall designate an agency, department, or unit to act as the Tribal Lead Agency to administer the CCDF program.
(b) With the exception of Alaska, California, and Oklahoma, programs and activities shall be carried out on an Indian reservation for the benefit of Indian children.
(c) In the case of a tribal grantee that is a consortium:
(1) A brief description of the direct child care services funded by CCDF for each of their participating Tribes shall be provided by the consortium in their two-year CCDF Plan; and
(2) Variations in CCDF programs or requirements and in child care licensing, regulatory and health and safety requirements shall be specified in written agreements between the consortium and the Tribe.
(3) If a Tribe elects to participate in a consortium arrangement to receive one part of the CCDF (e.g., Discretionary Funds), it may not join another consortium or apply as a direct grantee to receive the other part of the CCDF (e.g. Tribal Mandatory Funds).
(4) If a Tribe relinquishes its membership in a consortium at any time during the fiscal year, CCDF funds awarded on behalf of the member Tribe will remain with the tribal consortium to provide direct child care services to other consortium members for that fiscal year.
(d) Tribal Lead Agencies shall not be subject to the requirements at §§98.41(a)(1)(i), 98.44(a), 98.50(e), 98.52(a), 98.53 and 98.63.
(e) The base amount of any tribal grant is not subject to the administrative cost limitation at paragraph (g) of this section or the quality expenditure requirement at §98.51(a). The base amount may be expended for any costs consistent with the purposes and requirements of the CCDF.
(f) Tribal Lead Agencies whose total CCDF allotment pursuant to §§98.61(c) and 98.62(b) is less than an amount established by the Secretary shall not be subject to the following requirements:
(1) The assurance at §98.15(a)(2);
(2) The requirement for certificates at §98.30(a) and (d); and

Amounts used for construction and major renovation in accordance with §98.84 are not considered administrative costs.
(h)(1) CCDF funds are available for costs incurred by the Tribal Lead Agency only after the funds are made available by Congress for Federal obligation unless costs are incurred for planning activities related to the submission of an initial CCDF Plan.
(2) Federal obligation of funds for planning costs, pursuant to paragraph (h)(1) of this section is subject to the actual availability of the appropriation.
