The regional administrator shall appoint committee members from among those individuals designated by Indian authorities. These members should be familiar with and knowledgeable about the needs of children in general as well as the particular needs of Indian children residing in the service area.
(2) The committee may also include bureau of Indian affairs and/or Indian health service staff if approved by participating tribal councils and urban Indian organizations.

This rule shall not be construed, however, to prohibit expense payments to members who are otherwise qualified for and perform services compensable under other programs such as the volunteer programs.
