Training & Technical Assistance Request Program

Training & Technical Assistance Request Program

Program Overview

The New York State Office of Victim Services (OVS) Training & Technical Assistance Request Program is a customized, no-cost training and technical assistance pairing service for OVS-funded programs. By drawing on the expertise of training professionals, OVS matches specialized consultants with OVS-funded programs to deliver a wide-range of custom-tailored organizational leadership and communication services. 

Eligible Victim Assistance Programs (VAPs) can select a service or training topic from a catalogue and submit a formal training or technical assistance request online. Requests will be considered on a first come, first served basis, with the selection process streamlined for swift review and response. VAPs will then work directly with OVS consultants to determine appropriate training needs, delivery methods and schedule. OVS consultants will help facilitate this process throughout the completion of each approved request.    

All training and technical assistance request approvals are contingent upon the availability of state and federal funding. Additional Training and Technical Assistance Request Program information is linked below, including program standard operating procedures, consultant biographies and the full catalogue of services available.

Questions about the submission process or eligibility should be directed to [email protected] with “Question about TTARP” in the email subject line. Other VAP training opportunities are also updated routinely on the VAP Training Center Webpage
