TTA Catalog List

BJA NTTAC's online TTA Catalog is a feature for BJA's providers to market upcoming webinars, training opportunities, and technical assistance to the justice community based on their needs and locations. The BJA NTTAC team also shares conferences, trainings, and events from across the field that may be of interest to the justice community. Users are able to search by various filters (e.g., event type, date range, program area, keyword, location) in order to find events that meet their needs. The TTA "Catalog" tab displays results in a table view. The "Month", "Week", "Day", and "Year" tabs display events in calendar views. The "Upcoming" tab lists all upcoming events while the "Previous" tab lists all previous events.

In addition to events, the TTA Catalog allows users to browse or search through BJA's list of BJA TTA grantees. Use the "TTA Providers" tab to search for BJA TTA grantees by various filters (e.g., program area, keyword, criminal justice professional experience). The CSV button at the bottom left corner of the page will export results into a .csv file (similar to Excel).
