Since 1995, OVW’s Training and Technical Assistance (TTA) Program has provided OVW grantees with the training, expertise, and problem-solving strategies needed to meet the challenges of addressing domestic violence, sexual assault, dating violence, and stalking. OVW’s TTA projects offer in-person and on-line educational opportunities, peer-to-peer consultations, site-visits, and tailored assistance that allow OVW grantees and potential grantees (those entities that are eligible for OVW grant program funding) to learn from experts and one another about how to respond to crimes of violence against women effectively. In shaping its TTA Program, OVW receives input from its grant recipients, on a regular basis, so that the technical assistance (TA) provided by OVW and its TA providers can be refined as necessary to meet grantee needs. To continue to meet the needs of the growing grantee, potential grantee, and subgrantee communities, the OVW TTA Program and its TA providers must work together to continually enhance the existing and changing landscape of TTA.

As the comprehensive TA provider to the OVW TTA Program, the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ) operates TA2TA: The TA Provider Resource Center (TA2TA) and recognizes that the OVW TA provider community can bolster the collective impact through common forums for discussion and change. Through activities such as all-TA provider meetings, webinar series, roundtables, and peer-to-peer connections, both virtual and in-person, TA providers are afforded the opportunity to connect and collaborate with other programs and organizations to develop a shared understanding of TA and practical strategies to improve delivery approaches to their unique and varied constituents.

Designed by and for the OVW TA provider community, TA2TA facilitates the collaboration and communication integral to the continued strength and sustainability of the work of this project, the OVW TA provider community, and its constituents. In growing partnerships, strengthening relationships, and convening to identify promising practices and emerging trends, TA2TA lays the foundation for better day-to-day realization of work on OVW-funded projects while generating a strategic plan and future vision for the OVW TTA Program.

In addition to the NCJFCJ, other OVW TA providers that collaborate with TA2TA and OVW on this project include Asian Pacific Institute on Gender-Based Violence, Futures Without Violence, Vera Institute of Justice, and Violence Against Women Act Measuring Effectiveness Initiative.
