HB2575 was passed to help create systems that understand and know how to work with individuals who have experienced trauma. The Oregon Department of Justice (ODOJ) will partner with Trauma Informed Oregon to deliver the TIRT model curriculum through both day-long regional trainings and four-day statewide Train the Trainer facilitator trainings.
What is the purpose of the funding?
The purpose of TIRT funds is to fund training for groups and agencies that interact with persons who have experienced trauma.
Specifically, the training is intended for law enforcement, district attorneys, sexual assault nurse examiners, emergency communications workers, victim advocates or any other group or agency the law enforcement agency or local government determines appropriate for the training.
What trainings can be funded?
- Costs associated with sending trainees to a full-day ODOJ CVSSD coordinated Regional TIRT training.
- Costs associated with sending trainees to a four-day ODOJ CVSSD coordinated Train the Trainer facilitator training.
- Costs associated with conducting local training(s) led by graduates of the ODOJ CVSSD TIRT Facilitator Training.
Who can be funded?
