FCPC-TCSA was the ninth federally funded tribal child support program in the United States. As one of the pioneer programs, they provide guidance to other Tribes who are creating their own agencies.
In their first year of operation, FCPC-TCSA collected more than $1.3 million in child support. Much of that money was sent to children and families who had never before received child support payments.
In 2010, they collected just over $2.9 million in child support with most of the money distributed directly to families.
Today, the program manages over 525 child support and paternity cases serving more than 600 children.
In addition, FCPC-TCSA was chosen by the Federal Office of Child Support to be the pilot Tribe for the newly-developed tribal automated child support system called the Model Tribal System (MTS). This joint federal and Tribal sponsored program is the first automated system that is built specifically for Tribal Child Programs. FCPC-TCSA is working diligently to finding innovative was to assist other Tribal Nations in the future who utilize the MTS after it is released by OCSE. Interested Tribal Nations are encouraged to contact Jackie Pische, FCPC-Director, for more information.
