Training & Technical Assistance
A variety of training and technical assistance (TTA) services are available free of cost. Generally, assistance involves connecting agencies with national experts to provide services designed to address a specific need within the justice system.
Training & Technical Assistance (TTA) Resources for Courts
The State Justice Institute (SJI) offers technical assistance (TA) grants to state courts, local courts, and regional court associations to obtain expert help to diagnose a problem, develop a response, and implement needed changes.
Other federal agencies provide smaller-scale technical assistance at no cost. The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) National Training and Technical Assistance Center (NTTAC), for example, provides TTA on a wide range of criminal justice topics, including adjudication, corrections, crime prevention, justice information sharing, law enforcement, mental health, substance abuse, violence reduction, and tribal justice. Services may involve assistance implementing programs and strategies, curriculum development, data analysis, classroom and virtual training, peer-to-peer visits, research and information, and strategic planning.
