The Technical Assistance Outreach Initiative to Strengthen Indian Tribes' Capacity to Address Violence Against Women will fund a national project to provide culturally specific technical assistance to tribal governments and organizations for planning, implementing, and sustaining critical and comprehensive responses to violence against American Indian and Alaska Native women which includes, but is not limited to:

  • Developing coordinated community responses
  • Outreach and education
  • Community-based and systems advocacy
