Since 1995, OVW’s Technical Assistance (TA) Program has provided OVW grantees with the training, expertise, and problem-solving strategies they need to meet the challenges of addressing domestic violence, sexual assault, dating violence, and stalking.
OVW’s TA projects have offered in-person and on-line educational opportunities, peer-to-peer consultations, site-visits, and tailored assistance that have allowed OVW grantees and potential grantees (those entities that are eligible for OVW grant programs) to learn from experts and one another about how to respond to crimes of violence against women effectively.
In shaping its TA Program, OVW receives input from its grant recipients, on a regular basis, so that the 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 TA Program and its TA providers must work together to continually enhance the existing and changing landscape of TA.
As the comprehensive TA provider to the OVW TA Program, the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ) recognizes that the OVW TA provider community can bolster collective impact through common forums for discussion and change. Through activities such as all-TA provider meetings, webinar series, roundtables, and peer-to-peer meetings, 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, as part of the TA2TA Project, this website 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 projects, such as this website, lay 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 TA Program.
