NNEDV provides training, resources, and technical assistance to assist U.S. DOJ Office of Violence Against Women Grant Programs (OVW grantees) in their critical work of supporting victim safety, holding perpetrators accountable, and, ending violence. Specifically, NNEDV can support OVW grantees in the following areas:

Relocation Counseling & Identity Protection Initiative:

  • NNEDV's Safety Net Project, in partnership with Valenda Applegarth of Greater Boston Legal Services, works to ensure that OVW grantees have accurate information about available options and strategies for victims trying to relocate. We can address individual questions or provide trainings and information to groups regarding everything from preventing a survivor's new home address from being disclosed online to understanding the challenging legal and practical obstacles surrounding name change and crossing state lines with minor children. Handouts include: Myths & Realities of Identity Change.

Transitional Housing Technical Assistance Projects:

  • NNEDV is the OVW Technical Assistance provider for the Transitional Housing Program Grantees and the Recovery Act Transitional Housing Program Grantees. These TA projects provide training and technical assistance with an emphasis on building program capacity through a survivor-driven, empowerment-based approach. We provide programs with a range of educational opportunities and access to resources through national trainings and individualized assistance. Project activities include an annual new grantee orientation, trainings on specific topics related to providing longer term housing to survivors, teleconferences and webinars, shared resources and information on best practices, policy and protocol development, creating services beyond crisis intervention, and individualized site visits.

Coalition Technical Assistance Project:

  • As the OVW technical assistance provider for state domestic violence coalitions and dual domestic violence/sexual assault coalitions, NNEDV identifies and promotes best practices for serving victim populations with a variety of complex needs; convenes workgroups to develop new program models; identifies cross-cutting challenges and training requirements relative to victims with complex needs; maximizes exchanges of resources, materials and talent; coordinates training, conference calls and peer support; assists with problem-solving and program development; conducts population-specific training and offers individual and group technical assistance, local meetings and on-site consultations; and facilitates regional, topical and national meetings for coalitions.
