Request a Grant Writer

Grant to a USA or territories nonprofit organization, institution of higher education, or law enforcement training entity to provide technical support for programs that improve law enforcement response to gender-related violence and crime. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete.

About the OVW Training and Technical Assistance Initiative

The primary purpose of the OVW Training and Technical Assistance Initiative (TA Initiative) is to provide direct technical assistance to existing and potential grantees and sub-grantees to enhance their efforts to successfully implement projects supported by OVW grant funds. OVW’s TA Initiative is designed to strengthen and build the capacity of civil and criminal justice system professionals and victim service providers across the nation to respond effectively to domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking and foster partnerships among organizations that have not traditionally worked together to address these crimes.

About the OVW National Violence Against Women Law Enforcement Training and Technical Assistance Consortium

OVW seeks to establish a National Violence Against Women Law Enforcement Training and Technical Assistance Consortium (NLETC) to support the training and technical assistance (TTA) needs of state, tribal, territorial, and local law enforcement agencies, sworn officers, and civilian staff that will enhance and strengthen law enforcement responses to domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking. The NLETC will also provide targeted TTA to tribal law enforcement on sex trafficking. The NLETC reflects OVW’s commitment to ensuring that law enforcement responses to and investigations of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking are victim-centered, can aid in successful prosecution, and empower victims to heal and achieve safety and justice.

OVW expects the NLETC to serve as the initial point of entry and clearinghouse for all law enforcement TTA needs of existing and potential OVW grantees and sub-grantees, with a focus on the following programs:

  • Improving Criminal Justice Responses to Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, Sexual
    Assault, and Stalking Grant Program
  • Rural Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, Sexual Assault, and Stalking Program
  • Grants to Tribal Governments Program
  • Grants to Tribal Governments to Exercise Special Domestic Violence Criminal
    Jurisdiction
  • STOP Formula Grant Program

In addition to coordinating all law enforcement TTA requests for agencies serving a range of communities, including urban, suburban, rural, remote, and tribal, the NLETC is intended to provide rapid support and resources in response to time sensitive incidents in a community, and to be a leader in developing the next generation of expert law enforcement trainers. The NLETC will help identify, recruit, and develop law enforcement officers to be skilled trainers and mentors on the topics of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking cases. OVW is also interested in the NLETC developing trainings that could lead to a certification and/or be recognized by law enforcement agencies, police academies, and state-level officer standards and training organizations/boards/councils for continuing education credits or meeting annual training requirements on domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking.

In FY 2020, funds under the NLETC may be used to develop and deliver high-quality training, TA, and resources for OVW grantees, sub-grantees, and potential grantees on building law enforcement agency and officer capacity in responding to and investigating domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking that are trauma-informed, victim-centered, aid in successful prosecution, and support victim healing, safety, and justice. TTA may include but is not limited to:

  1. On-site TTA.
  2. Regional trainings or conferences.
  3. National trainings or conferences.
  4. Virtual or telephonic TTA.
  5. Resource development and dissemination. 
  6. Listening sessions.
  7. On-line or web-based knowledge development resources.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Eligible applicants for this call for concept papers are limited to:

- Institutions of higher education.
- State law enforcement training and/or standards entities.
- Nonprofit organizations.

Required Partnerships
A single applicant cannot fulfill all requirements necessary for the success of the NLETC. OVW is requiring a consortium of organizations to apply under this call for papers. The consortium must include a lead applicant and a minimum of four partner organizations and/or individual consultants that can meet the TTA needs of the range of law enforcement agencies that receive OVW funding, including those in urban, suburban, rural, remote, tribal, and territorial communities. The lead applicant cannot provide TTA. All TTA will only be provided by project partner organizations and/or individual consultants.

The lead applicant must:

- Have a documented history of managing large-scale projects both financially and programmatically.
- Demonstrate readiness and capacity to coordinate national level TTA developed and
delivered by consortium partners.

The proposed consortium must include partner organizations and/or individual consultants that
collectively have:

- A demonstrated history of providing TA on a national level.
- Expertise working with state, tribal, territorial, and local law enforcement.
- Expertise working with community and system-based stakeholders (i.e. prosecutors, advocates, judges, rape crisis centers, etc.) to identify emerging issues related to law enforcement responses to domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking.
- Expertise working with tribal governments.
- Expertise working with law enforcement in rural communities.
- A demonstrated history of meaningfully addressing domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking.

The activities listed below are out of the program scope, and they will not be supported by this program’s funding.

For information on distinguishing between research and assessments, see the heading on this topic in the Funding Restrictions section of this solicitation and the Solicitation Companion Guide.

OVW’s TA Initiative funds are intended to support educational and training opportunities and TA for current and potential OVW grantees and sub-grantees.
