Grant to a USA or territories nonprofit, tribal organization, or educational institution to provide technical assistance and training to domestic and dating violence service providers at the local, regional, state, and national levels. Required registrations may take several weeks to complete. The grantee will be expected to provide national, regional, state, and local technical assistance to help build the capacity of FVPSA Formula Grantees and subrecipients to maintain organizations that are healthy, sound, sustainable, and programmatically aligned with FVPSA statutory, regulatory, and programmatic requirements to better serve survivors of domestic and dating violence, and their dependents.
The grantee will be expected to:
- Provide topic-specific training and technical assistance at a national level;
- Engage in intensive training and technical assistance at the state, territory, or tribal level; and
- Create and distribute capacity building resources to FVPSA grantees.
The training and technical assistance will be provided to FVPSA State Administrators, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Designated State and Territory Domestic Violence Coalitions, and FVPSA Tribal Grantees (collectively referred to as FVPSA Formula Grantees). Any technical assistance provided to FVPSA Tribal Grantees will be done in consultation with the two other FVPSA-funded resource centers, the National Indigenous Women's Resource Center and the Alaska Native Resource Center.

In order to support subrecipients’ ability to meet these requirements, this grantee will provide activities that build or enhance the subrecipients' programmatic and administrative functions including:
- Understanding and complying with FVPSA Statute (42 USC § 10401 et seq) and Regulations (45 CFR §1370),
- Understanding roles and responsibilities of the state administrating agency and coalition,
- Incorporation of best practices at the state and local levels,
- Building the management capacity of organizations, and
- Building meaningful partnerships and collaborations within the state or territory.
