July/August 2010Vol. 11, No. 6Nazario Resignation

Carmen Nazario, Assistant Secretary for Children and Families, is resigning her post effective July 16. Nominated by President Obama, her nomination was confirmed by the Senate on September 23, 2009.

During her tenure, Assistant Secretary Nazario has defined the goals of the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) as helping families achieve economic success, supporting healthy and comprehensive child development, and improving ACF's institutional capacity to make a difference in the lives of children. Secretary Sebelius has commended Nazario for overseeing ACF's first organization assessment, for her focus on program oversight and integrity, and for initiating an outreach program to engage underserved populations.

Assistant Secretary Nazario is resigning for family reasons. Until a new nominee is identified and confirmed by the Senate, ACF's current Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary, David Hansell, will serve as Acting Assistant Secretary.
