Training and Technical Assistance Center

The National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs (NCAVP) coordinates the National Training and Technical Assistance (TTA) Center on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, & Queer (LGBTQ) Cultural Competency. This project is currently conducting a national needs assessment with mainstream organizations across the country to assess gaps in services and provide tailored technical assistance to increase LGBTQ accessibility and inclusivity among these organizations. Our TTA Center on LGBTQ Cultural Competency also provides free ongoing technical assistance and support to current and potential Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) grantees nationwide through a toll-free warmline number, list serve, Deaf-accessible instant messaging AIM, and resource bank of LGBTQ anti-violence materials. The NCAVP Training and Technical Assistance Center is available for direct service and advocacy organizations seeking answers, support, and strategies to become inclusive of and accessible to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) survivors. Our members are available to provide technical assistance on issues such as language and terminology, creating an LGBTQ-inclusive organization, developing LGBTQ-inclusive policies and procedures, building relationships with LGBTQ communities and more. All questions and requests for assistance are welcome.
