OVW FY 2017 Technical Assistance Outreach Initiative to Strengthen Indian Tribes’ Capacity to Address Violence Against Women

The Technical Assistance Outreach Initiative to Strengthen Indian Tribes’ Capacity to Address Violence Against Women (referred to as the Tribal TA Outreach Initiative) was created to maximize resources and extend technical assistance beyond the limited number of tribes that receive OVW grant funding. Through this initiative OVW seeks to build the capacity of tribal governments, tribal justice system professionals, and tribal victim services organizations to respond effectively to sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking. Specifically, OVW wants to focus technical assistance support towards tribes which have had no or marginal success in accessing grant funding through the OVW Tribal Affairs Division or other OVW grant programs, in an effort to enhance victim services and assist tribal criminal justice systems to more effectively address victim safety and offender accountability. Current Closing Date for Applications: March 02, 2017.
