This project was created in December of 1997 to provide meeting planning and other support services to technical assistance providers for the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs, Office on Violence Against Women. The project was developed to respond to concerns about the consistent and efficient provision of training and technical assistance to hundreds of grantees under the Grants to Encourage Arrest, STOP Violence Against Women, Rural Domestic Violence and Child Victimization Enforcement, and STOP Violence Against Indian Women programs. The project had two primary goals, to:
- Develop coordinated, efficient, cost-effective methods to deliver training and technical assistance to grantees under the various Office of Violence Against Women-sponsored grant programs; and
- Support the capacity of the Office of Violence Against Woman to learn from the efforts of its grantees and assist them in developing new initiatives that will enhance violence against women prevention and intervention efforts.
