American Indian Vocational Rehabilitation Training and Technical Assistance Center (AIVRTTAC)

Assistance Listing Number: 84.250Z
Program Type: Discretionary Grant

Program Description 

The purpose of the AIVRTTAC is to provide training and technical assistance (TA) to governing bodies of Indian tribes that administer an American Indian Vocational Rehabilitation Services (AIVRS) project. Under section 121(c)(3) of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, the RSA Commissioner makes grants to, or enters into contracts or other cooperative agreements with, entities that have experience in the operation of AIVRS projects to provide training and TA on developing, conducting, administering, and evaluating these projects.

The AIVRTTAC provides three levels of TA: intensive/sustained, targeted/specific, and general/universal. At the intensive/sustained level, AIVRS projects receive on-site, ongoing planned assistance designed to reach an outcome desired by the recipient. Through targeted/specific services, the AIVRTTAC supports activities based on the topical or technical needs common to multiple recipients and can be one-time or short-term events such as consultation services or presentations at conferences. The AIVRTTAC also provides general/universal TA services that permit a broader audience to access information and services through presentations, newsletters, or research syntheses that are made available on the AIVRTTAC website.


States and public or nonprofit agencies and organizations, including Indian tribes and Institutions of Higher Education (IHEs) may apply.
