Technical Assistance and Training Initiative

Published on AidPage by IDILOGIC on Jun 24, 2005

Administered by:

US Federal Government Agency (see all agencies)
Department of Justice , Violence Against Women Office
CFDA #: 16.526

Purpose of this program:

To provide communities with critical resources that help them forge partnerships across agencies and disciplines to respond effectively to violent crimes against women. VAWO's Technical Assistance Program was created to provide grantees with the expertise and support they need to develop and implement successful local projects, increase victim safety, and bolster offender accountability. Grantees participate in educational initiatives, conferences, peer-to- peer consultations, and targeted assistance that allow them to learn from experts and one another about how to overcome obstacles and incorporate promising practices in their efforts to address violence against women. In addition, the Technical Assistance Program focuses on building the capacity of national criminal justice and victim advocacy organizations to effectively address violent crimes against women and examine issues of special interest to VAWO and its constituents.
