1.8    "Sec. .... Minnesota Statutes 2010, section 256.01, subdivision 14b, is amended to read:
1.9    Subd. 14b. American Indian child welfare projects. (a) The commissioner of
1.10human services may authorize projects to test tribal delivery of child welfare services to
1.11American Indian children and their parents and custodians living on the reservation.
1.12The commissioner has authority to solicit and determine which tribes may participate
1.13in a project. Grants may be issued to Minnesota Indian tribes to support the projects.
1.14The commissioner may waive existing state rules as needed to accomplish the projects.
1.15Notwithstanding section 626.556, the commissioner may authorize projects to use
1.16alternative methods of investigating and assessing reports of child maltreatment, provided
1.17that the projects comply with the provisions of section 626.556 dealing with the rights
1.18of individuals who are subjects of reports or investigations, including notice and appeal
1.19rights and data practices requirements. The commissioner may seek any federal approvals
1.20necessary to carry out the projects as well as seek and use any funds available to the
1.21commissioner, including use of federal funds, foundation funds, existing grant funds,
1.22and other funds. The commissioner is authorized to advance state funds as necessary to
1.23operate the projects. Federal reimbursement applicable to the projects is appropriated
1.24to the commissioner for the purposes of the projects. The projects must be required to
1.25address responsibility for safety, permanency, and well-being of children.
1.26(b) For the purposes of this section, "American Indian child" means a person under
1.2718 years of age 21 years old and who is a tribal member or eligible for membership in
2.1one of the tribes chosen for a project under this subdivision and who is residing on the
2.2reservation of that tribe.
2.3(c) In order to qualify for an American Indian child welfare project, a tribe must:
2.4(1) be one of the existing tribes with reservation land in Minnesota;
2.5(2) have a tribal court with jurisdiction over child custody proceedings;
2.6(3) have a substantial number of children for whom determinations of maltreatment
2.7have occurred;
2.8(4) have capacity to respond to reports of abuse and neglect under section 626.556;
2.9(5) provide a wide range of services to families in need of child welfare services; and
2.10(6) have a tribal-state title IV-E agreement in effect.
2.11(d) Grants awarded under this section may be used for the nonfederal costs of
2.12providing child welfare services to American Indian children on the tribe's reservation,
2.13including costs associated with:
2.14(1) assessment and prevention of child abuse and neglect;
2.15(2) family preservation;
2.16(3) facilitative, supportive, and reunification services;
2.17(4) out-of-home placement for children removed from the home for child protective
2.18purposes; and

2.20of providing safety, permanency, and well-being of American Indian children.
2.21(e) When a tribe has initiated a project and has been approved by the commissioner
2.22to assume child welfare responsibilities for American Indian children of that tribe under
2.23this section, the affected county social service agency is relieved of responsibility for
2.24responding to reports of abuse and neglect under section 626.556 for those children
2.25during the time within which the tribal project is in effect and funded. The commissioner
2.26shall work with tribes and affected counties to develop procedures for data collection,
2.27evaluation, and clarification of ongoing role and financial responsibilities of the county
2.28and tribe for child welfare services prior to initiation of the project. Children who have not
2.29been identified by the tribe as participating in the project shall remain the responsibility
2.30of the county. Nothing in this section shall alter responsibilities of the county for law
2.31enforcement or court services.
2.32(f) Participating tribes may conduct children's mental health screenings under section
2.33245.4874, subdivision 1 , paragraph (a), clause (14), for children who are eligible for the
2.34initiative and living on the reservation and who meet one of the following criteria:
2.35(1) the child must be receiving child protective services;
2.36(2) the child must be in foster care; or
3.1(3) the child's parents must have had parental rights suspended or terminated.
3.2Tribes may access reimbursement from available state funds for conducting the screenings.
3.3Nothing in this section shall alter responsibilities of the county for providing services
3.4under section 245.487.
3.5(g) Participating tribes may establish a local child mortality review panel. In
3.6establishing a local child mortality review panel, the tribe agrees to conduct local child
3.7mortality reviews for child deaths or near-fatalities occurring on the reservation under
3.8subdivision 12 . Tribes with established child mortality review panels shall have access
3.9to nonpublic data and shall protect nonpublic data under subdivision 12, paragraphs (c)
3.10to (e). The tribe shall provide written notice to the commissioner and affected counties
3.11when a local child mortality review panel has been established and shall provide data upon
3.12request of the commissioner for purposes of sharing nonpublic data with members of the
3.13state child mortality review panel in connection to an individual case.
3.14(h) The commissioner shall collect information on outcomes relating to child safety,
3.15permanency, and well-being of American Indian children who are served in the projects.
3.16Participating tribes must provide information to the state in a format and completeness
3.17deemed acceptable by the state to meet state and federal reporting requirements."
