Funding Opportunity

How Being Trauma Informed Improves Criminal Justice System Responses Train-the-Trainer Event


SAMHSA's GAINS Center is now soliciting applications from experienced trainers (individuals) who are interested in developing their capacity to provide trauma-informed training in their local agencies/communities via the How Being Trauma Informed Improves Criminal Justice System Responses curriculum. Selected applicants will learn to facilitate the training via a virtual Train-The-Trainer (TTT) event and subsequently deliver the training program in their local communities. While not a requirement to apply to this opportunity, this year’s selection process will place special emphasis on applicants who provide training to drug courts and/or reentry programs.

The GAINS Center is offering this event at no cost to experienced trainers who successfully complete the application process. All applicants must have the technological capacity to engage in the TTT, including having access to an individual PC/workstation that has internet access and the ability to download and launch virtual meeting software. If this TTT event for individuals is of interest to you, please review the solicitation and submit your completed application form to the GAINS Center no later than February 10, 2021.

TTT Training Event Dates

There will be at least two TTT events scheduled, with the possibility of a third, for April 7-8, May 5-6, and/or June 9-10. Please note the dates before applying and include your availability in the application as directed. If selected, you will be expected to attend one of these full 2-day TTT events.
