The Children, Youth and Families Department (CYFD) seeks to solicit sealed proposals to establish a contract through competitive negotiations for the procurement of statewide up-to-date training and technical assistance resources to tribal entities and domestic violence agencies specifically serving the various tribes and pueblos in New Mexico.

Training and technical assistance shall include a broad range of topics relevant to domestic violence agencies and advocates who serve Native American victim/survivors, child witnesses, and offenders of domestic violence.
The coalition is required to have demonstrated experience in and strong working knowledge of trauma-informed Native American domestic violence service provision; extensive knowledge of the various tribes and pueblos that reside in New Mexico; specific challenges for Native American families dealing with domestic violence as well as a demonstrated history of providing similar services to domestic violence agencies, advocates, and tribal entities.
