Resources for TTA Providers
Training and Technical Assistance Standards - Revised March 2019
The Core Performance Standards were developed to promote the consistency and quality of OJJDP-sponsored TTA activities among providers, and to advance common expectations of performance excellence. The Core Performance Standards present minimum expectations for effective practice in the planning, coordination, delivery, and evaluation of training.
OJJDP TTA Provider Resource, Event, and Spotlight Collection Form
OJJDP’s training and technical assistance (TTA) providers should submit upcoming events and all resources (e.g. toolkits, white papers, etc.) developed with grant funding to OJJDP.
This form allows TTA providers to easily submit that information, along with spotlights that give TTA providers an opportunity to showcase the impact of their work on communities around the country.
