What is capacity building?

Capacity building refers to the process of identifying the internal and external barriers that inhibit victim services organizations, allied professionals, or individual providers from delivering effective services to all crime victims, and building on existing strengths, enhancing skills, and providing new tools to overcome those barriers. TTA specialists will conduct a thorough needs assessment to maximize the use of OVC's resources to build capacity.
