Funding Agency:
Department of Justice

The Missing and Exploited Children Training and Technical Assistance Program provides assistance to prosecutors, state and local law enforcement and child protection personnel, medical providers, and other child-serving professionals to strengthen multidisciplinary team responses to and improve prosecution of missing and exploited children’s issues. OJJDP funds this program to build the capacity of state, tribal, and local agencies, and to encourage the development and implementation of best practices related to the investigation and prosecution of cases of missing and exploited children. 

Through this solicitation, OJJDP will support a coordinated and comprehensive training and technical assistance program that includes program design, development, and implementation. As a key competitive factor, applicants must identify how they will implement the identified tasks, describe how they will ensure the timely delivery of requested training and technical assistance, and determine the cost efficiencies they will achieve in the management and staffing of the program. OJJDP encourages applicants to present creative and innovative concepts on how they would implement the program. OJJDP expects to modify tasks and specifications within tasks as the Office identifies emergent needs. The successful applicant will consult with OJJDP, who will provide guidance on technical assistance topics, publications, manuals, training conferences, and other substantive issues and deliverables. 

The successful applicant will provide all personnel, equipment, tools, materials, supervision, and other items and activities needed to perform the tasks, as defined. The awardee will coordinate and/or perform all tasks described. 

Under this solicitation, only one application by any particular applicant entity will be considered.
