Training & Technical Assistance
Under a Technical Assistance Program cooperative agreement from the Office on Violence Against Women (OVW), the Maryland Network Against Domestic Violence (MNADV) provides training and technical assistance to communities across the country to promote or enhance strategies to address homicide prevention and reduce violence against women. Under this program, the MNADV provides cost-free train-the-trainer instruction and technical assistance to community-based domestic violence victim services programs and their partnering law enforcement agencies to implement the Domestic Violence Lethality Assessment Program (LAP) in their jurisdictions.
