Dear TA Providers,

As the comprehensive Technical Assistance (TA) Provider for the Office of Violence Against Women (OVW) on language access, we work with other technical assistance providers, grantees, sub-grantees and partners to improve and ensure meaningful access to limited English proficient (LEP) victims when seeking safety, justice and healing.

To advance these crucial endeavors, we’d like to announce that our Interpretation Training and Technical Assistance Resource Center (ITARC) is in the process of developing a toolkit for technical assistance providers.

Our goal is to include in this toolkit the most relevant information that can support you in your undertakings to comply with the federal language access mandate, integrate it into your organizational planning and implementation, and include it in your technical assistance to other grantees­­­.

For this reason, we’d like to extend an invitation to send any feedback or input regarding: topics you want to see in the document; questions you have; challenges you might be confronting, or successful practices you have implemented to improve language access.

To submit input or suggestions, use the form on this page or email Ana Paula Noguez Mercado, Interpretation Training and Technical Assistance Coordinator at We’ll be gathering input throughout February. Thank you!
