Grant to a USA or territories nonprofit organization or institution of higher education to provide support to programs designed to prevent deaths related to domestic violence. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. The purpose of funding is to create a resource center that will provide training and technical assistance to jurisdictions interested in implementing a domestic violence homicide prevention (DVHP) intervention.

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 Domestic Violence Homicide Prevention Technical Assistance Resource Center

Beginning in fiscal year 2012, the appropriation for OVW’s Improving Criminal Justice
Responses to Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, Sexual Assault, and Stalking Program (ICJR Program) has included a $4,000,000 allocation to address domestic violence homicides. OVW has used this funding to support its Domestic Violence Homicide Prevention Demonstration Initiative (DVHP-DI), testing and evaluating lethality/risk assessment tools and other strategies to reduce domestic violence homicides.

Utilizing lessons learned from OVW’s implementation of the DVHP-DI, the National Domestic Violence Homicide Prevention Technical Assistance Resource Center (NDVHP TARC) will provide customized and intensive training and technical assistance (TTA) to jurisdictions interested in implementing a domestic violence homicide prevention (DVHP) intervention. Lessons from the DVHP-DI indicate that, in order to better and more fully assist jurisdictions that want to implement a DVHP intervention, communities must engage in a comprehensive community assessment to identify needs, gaps, resources, and capacity to implement a DVHP intervention. The NDVHP TARC project may develop and/or enhance a community assessment tool that will be used to assess a jurisdiction’s capacity to implement a DVHP intervention, maintain a resource center about existing and new DVHP interventions available, and provide training, technical assistance (TA), and resources for each of the professions, to include law enforcement, domestic violence victim service providers, prosecutors, judges and other court staff, involved in implementing a DVHP intervention.

In FY 2020, funds under the NDVHP TARC may be used to develop and deliver high-quality
training, TA, and resources to OVW grantees, sub-grantees, and potential grantees on
implementing DVHP interventions. TTA may include, but is not limited to:

  • Developing/enhancing and deploying a community assessment with a team of experts.
  • Development and implementation of strategic plans specific to implementing a DVHP
  • On-site TTA.
  • Regional trainings.
  • National trainings.
  • On-line training including webinars or web-based resources.
  • Virtual or telephonic consultation.
