STTAC will also continue to assess TTA recipients' needs and provide ongoing coaching for practice change, with a strong emphasis on requests to build capacity to comply with the four core requirements of the JJDP Act to (1) demonstrate an understanding of TTA issues, including needs of grantees and nongrantees and issues relevant to state juvenile justice systems; (2) develop and disseminate innovative training materials/TTA including, but not limited to, audience-specific resource guides such as a Compliance Monitor's Desktop Guide and a Juvenile Justice Specialist Resource Manual, webinars, virtual training curricula, and Live Chat sessions; (3) provide support for OJJDP's Statistical Briefing Book through AIR's partnership with the National Center for Juvenile Justice; and (4) ensure timely delivery of requested TTA and determine the cost efficiencies they will achieve in the management and staffing of the program. STTAC will (1) deliver timely, customized products and services to respond to varied needs and degrees of readiness, (2) build on the rich menu of in-person and virtual events, and (3) capture, elevate, and transfer best practices, using peer learning events. STTAC will address two new tasks to support states to develop emergency/disaster plans and improve the operation of juvenile drug courts. CA/NCF
