Customized Technical Assistance

What do I need to do to obtain customized technical assistance?

Prior to applying for technical assistance, please call 1–866–682–8822 to speak with an OVC TTAC TTA specialist.

Visit the Customized Technical Assistance page for specific eligibility requirements, application information, and FAQs. Note that requests for assistance must be complete and submitted at least 90 days prior to the date of the event - NO EXCEPTIONS.

Note: To support victim service agencies and allied professionals during these challenging times, OVC TTAC is temporarily accepting applications submitted 60 days prior to your desired start date.

OVC also offers Training as another option for program leaders who wish to organize a specific training for their own region.

How do I request a speaker for an event?

Speaker Support is available for conference sessions and plenary, panel, or victim impact presentations to support your meeting or conference. For more information, visit the Speaker Support page.

How do I check on the status of my CTA request?

Upon the receipt of your application, OVC TTAC sends a confirmation notice via email within 48 hours. If you did not provide an email address, OVC TTAC will fax the confirmation notice. If you do not receive a confirmation in the specified timeframe, please contact OVC TTAC immediately by telephone at 1–866–682–8822 or by email at

Can my organization receive a Training and Customized Technical Assistance Program award in the same year?

Yes. You may apply for capacity building assistance if your organization successfully implemented the previous assistance. Please note, OVC's resources are limited, and OVC may not be able to support technical assistance requests that do not build capacity more than once per year.
