Through the OVC Training and Technical Assistance Center (OVC TTAC), OVC can deploy consultants and trainers to assist communities with efforts to create a comprehensive and overarching plan to include victims in preparation for a mass violence or terrorism incident. OVC encourages you to request no-cost, customized training and technical assistance (TTA) to help you develop a comprehensive victim assistance plan before a mass violence or terrorism event occurs.
