Join OVW’s 2021 Conferral Webinars!
The Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) invites you to participate in its biennial conferral with stakeholders.
The Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013 established a conferral process by which State and tribal coalitions, OVW technical assistance (TA) providers, and other key stakeholders in the field inform OVW policies and programs.
The conferral process emphasizes feedback from state and tribal coalitions and TA providers, as well as crucial stakeholders such as STOP and SASP Administrators, Indian tribes, and grantees of other OVW programs.
In addition, Tribal governments have an annual consultation with OVW to provide input on OVW programs. Comments from the consultation will also be included in OVW’s conferral report.
OVW is hosting four sessions that are all are open to the public.
Topics, times, and instructions for joining are briefly listed below. Complete details on the conferral webinars, as well as a welcome video from OVW Acting Director Allison Randall can be found on the conferral website here: OVW2021Conferral.org.
