Rural Training and Technical Assistance

The Rural Training and Technical Assistance Project, a program of the Resource Sharing Project, is available to OVW Rural Grantees that are dual/multi-service advocacy agencies or sexual assault coalitions. The rural team provides webinars, publications, tools, national conferences, training and technical assistance for dual and multi-service agencies seeking to enhance services to all sexual violence survivors.  The Rural TA Project can assist on a range of issues related to sexual violence services, such as:

  • Developing an outreach plan for sexual assault survivors in your community
  • Performing a sexual assault needs assessment
  • Providing culturally and linguistically specific/accessible services to sexual assault survivors
  • Advocacy for the unique needs of sexual violence survivors

This project was supported by Grant No. 2015-TA-AX-K018 awarded by the Office on Violence Against Women, U.S. Department of Justice.
