Abstract: The Office for Victims of Crime Training and Technical Assistance Center (OVC TTAC) and OJJDP National Training and Technical Assistance Center (NTTAC) Feedback Form Package is designed to collect the data necessary to continuously access the outcome and impact of the assistance provided through OVC TTAC and NTTAC for both monitoring and accountability purposes to continuously meet the needs of the victim services and Juvenile Justice fields. Both OVC TTAC and NTTAC will send these forms to training and technical assistance (TTA) recipients to capture important feedback on the recipient’s satisfaction with the quality, efficiency, referrals, and resources provided.
