NCJFCJ Firearms TA Project Solicitation – Q&A Session

The National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ), in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Justice, Office on Violence Against Women (OVW), invites proposals from communities to participate in the Domestic Violence Homicide Prevention Firearms Technical Assistance Project (FTAP). The overall objective of the FTAP is to help communities identify challenges limiting a more robust implementation of domestic violence firearms laws in their jurisdictions and assist them in establishing a localized response that is best suited to their communities’ unique needs and characteristics. NCJFCJ seeks proposals from communities reflective of the geographic diversity across the country, including rural, urban, suburban, and tribal settings, as well as sites with differing governing laws. 
NCJFCJ is conducting a one hour Q&A session on Wednesday, September 5, 2018 at 10am PT / 11am MT / 12pm CT / 1pm ET. Please register here for the Q&A.
