Southern California Tribal Chairmen's Association

The Southern California Tribal Chairmen's Association (SCTCA) is a multi-service non-profit corporation established in 1972 for a consortium of 19 federally-recognized Indian tribes in Southern California. The primary mission of SCTCA is to serve the health, welfare, safety, education, cultural, economic and employment needs of its tribal members and descendants in the San Diego County urban areas. A board of directors comprised of tribal chairpersons from each of its member Tribes governs SCTCA.

SCTCA coordinates and administers numerous grant programs for its members and the southern California Indian community, including: Tribal Temporary Assistance to Needy Families(TANF), Law Enforcement, Food Commodities, Information Technology Services, Rincon Child Development Center, Adult Vocational Training, Career Development Center, Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program(LIHEAP), the Library Program, Child Care Development Services, Tribal Digital Village (TDV) and Resource Prevention Program.

Tribal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families will make available the tools necessary to promote the empowering of Indian families to become self-sufficient so they can support and nurture themselves, their children, and community.

The Southern California Tribal Chairmen's Association(SCTCA) is addressing the lack of Internet access for its tribal communities, taking their wireless broadband network to the next level of support for its communities, the "tribal home".

The Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations is a program of the Food and Nutrition Service of the U. S. Department of Agriculture. This program provides foods for good health to households living on Indian reservations.

SCTCA TANF's approach to reduce out of wedlock pregnancies and promote two-parent families is to build a healthy life style with these objectives and activities. The Resource Program is currently assisting 9 San Diego North County Reservations.
