Regional SAA TTA Trainings

Regional Strategic Planning Training

The NCJA, in partnership with the Bureau of Justice Assistance, will host a series of regional training sessions to help SAAs meet the new strategic planning requirements that will be part of the FY19 Byrne Justice Assistance Grant applications. This training will focus on the elements of successful strategic planning, evidence-based practice, data and analysis for policy and program evaluation, and coordination with other components of the juvenile and criminal justice system.

This session will start 9:00 AM on December 10 and end at 12:30 PM on December 11. Attendees should bring their submitted 2019 Byrne JAG plan for review. We will walk through the solicitation requirements, talk about new reporting and begin planning for the required annual review and update process. If you were unable to submit a strategic plan with your Byrne JAG application, this training will help you to understand the requirement.
