2. Bimonthly TA focused cluster calls of sites grouped, based on a combination of several criteria. Site leads can invite their partners and stakeholders to these calls every other month.

The purpose of the calls are to
Discuss operational grant and TA–related issues.
Problem-solve common challenges.
Maximize opportunities for peer learning/sharing.

TA Focused Cluster Call Criteria
Assumes there is some synergy across initiatives that lends to cross-site learning opportunities.

Tribal status:
Understands that culture and approach must be respected and valued.

Co-located/proximal jurisdictions:

Recognizes that some locales have more than one grant among the three initiatives and that there is potential value in connecting these sites to maximize coordination and collaboration.

Lead agency:
Assumes grantees of the same sector share common approaches and challenges and that cross-site learning can be maximized through clustering.

Stage of implementation/funding:
All sites are in different phases of implementation, with clusters of sites either in the early or graduating phase. Sites also differ on available funding and levels of sustainability mechanisms for resourcing the work, which led to a grouping of sites across initiatives that run out of federal funding in 2016.

Relationship to TTA provider:
Recognizes that TTA will be enhanced through strong knowledge of and familiarity with sites and specific grantees, and builds off strong existing relationships with core TTA providers.

Communities of Practice Calls
Law enforcement community of practice
Every other month
Faith based community of practice
The purpose of these calls are:
For affinity group members to delve more deeply into topical issues related to each affinity group and encourage cross-site learning, sharing of strategies, and problem solving.

Enhancements to TTA Strategy (cont’d)
4. One-on-one TA calls (if applicable)
One-on-one TA calls as a follow-up to the cluster calls (if needed).
Purpose is to individually engage the sites and provide mentoring, coaching, and/or problem solving.
