Documenting the impact OVW grants make on women, their families, and their communities.

Technical Assistance (TA) Program

Program Overview

The primary purpose of the OVW TA Program is to provide direct assistance to grantees and subgrantees to enhance the success of local projects they are implementing with OVW grant funds. In addition, OVW is focused on building the capacity of criminal justice and victim services organizations to respond effectively to sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking and to foster partnerships between organizations that have not traditionally worked together to address violence against women, such as faith- and community- based organizations.

As a result of VAWA 2000, all grant recipients are statutorily required to report on the effectiveness of their projects, and the Attorney General must report to Congress on the effectiveness of each grant program. Therefore, grantees funded under this program must collect and maintain data that measures their effectiveness. Grantees are required to submit a Semi-Annual Progress Report.
