Training and Technical Assistance

OVW's Technical Assistance Program provides training, expertise and problem-solving strategies to meet the challenges of addressing sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking.

Technical assistance projects offer in-person and online educational opportunities, peer-to-peer consultations, site visits and tailored assistance for OVW grantees and potential grantees. In more limited circumstances, OVW's technical assistance projects offer technical assistance to a small number of pilot sites as part of demonstration initiatives or assessments of newly developed training curricula or tools. 

OVW is focused on building the capacity of criminal justice and victim services organizations to respond effectively to sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking and fostering partnerships among organizations that have not traditionally worked together to address violence against women.

Include a brief description of the conference and who the intended participants. Please allow us two weeks to get a response to you and allow ample time for some grantees to get final approval from their grant managers. We will be looking to see which programs can statutorily support participation and then we will let you know the type of guidance you can put in your promotional materials.
