Training and Technical Assistance
The NCJA staff provides training and technical assistance in a variety of areas through our federal grant work. Our current TTA includes:
- Assistance to state criminal justice administering agencies (SAA) to build sustainable capacity to engage in community and evidence based strategic planning to improve the administration of justice.
- Assistance in developing and delivering guidance and training for state, regional, local, tribal, transportation and port jurisdictions/agencies on basic and advanced grants management principles and practices in order to improve the ability of FEMA grant recipients to administer federal grant funding.
- Assistance in helping SAVIN Administrators overcome programmatic and technology barriers by helping states build, implement, and improve their victim notification capacity.
NCJA staff is engaged on many legislative and Administration issues. NCJA provides service to our members by providing up-to-the-minute information about pending legislation and the federal appropriations process and by communicating with federal officials on Capitol Hill and in the Administration about how federal policy affects the delivery of services to the field. Because NCJA members are engaged across all aspects of the criminal justice system, NCJA is engaged in a wide range of policy issues our work as advocates for effective criminal justice policy and adequate funding for state, local and tribal justice assistance programs impacts the entire criminal justice community.
