This program provides grants for direct technical assistance to existing and potential grantees and sub-grantees to enhance and support their efforts to successfully implement projects supported by OVW grant funds. This initiative is designed to build and enhance the capacity of civil and criminal justice system professionals and victim service providers to respond effectively to sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking and foster partnerships among organizations that have not traditionally worked together to address these crimes.

A table that describes targeted technical assistance purpose areas and their associated technical assistance activities is provided in the application instructions. Multiple purpose areas pertain to rural areas and tribal communities.

Applicants are encouraged to incorporate one or more priority areas into their proposed project, even if not identified in the purpose area description.

  • Advance racial equity as an essential component of ending sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking
  • Increase access to justice for all survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking, including through exploration of survivor-centered criminal justice system reform
  • Strengthen efforts to prevent and end sexual assault, including victim services and civil and criminal justice responses
  • Expand economic justice and financial advocacy for survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking, including as a tool for violence prevention
  • Improve outreach, services, civil and criminal justice responses, prevention, and support for survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking from underserved communities, particularly LGBTQ and immigrant communities

Eligible entities for this program are national, tribal, statewide, or other nonprofit organizations that have the capacity to provide training and technical assistance on a national level.
