Training Policies & Fees
Please note that in order to receive refunds or credits, registered participants must notify the DCADV Training, Outreach and Prevention Team by phone 302-658-2958 or email email@example.com no later than six business days before the scheduled training. Otherwise, all registrants, including no-shows, will not be eligible for a refund, and any registrants who have not prepaid will receive an invoice. Registrants receiving DCADV Training Scholarships are subject to the same policy and are not eligible for cancellation refunds or credits for the scholarship portion of their registration costs.
Training Fees and Financial Assistance
As a non-profit agency, DCADV requests reimbursements for staff travel expenses incurred as part of our training and technical assistance efforts. DCADV’s mileage reimbursement policy is based on the current federal rate of $0.545/mile as of January 1, 2018. Memberships and donations to DCADV are also appreciated to support our coalition and task forces, and our wide array of advocacy, policy, training and prevention programs. However, DCADV is dedicated to helping Delaware communities effectively respond to and prevent domestic violence, and remains committed to this effort regardless of our partners’ resource limitations. Training and technical assistance are available to member organizations at no charge.
Scholarships for DCADV Training Events
Financial assistance for training event registrations may be available to eligible participants. Pending the availability of funds, DCADV will consider requests for partial scholarships covering up to 50% of the registration fee only (excludes lodging and travel expenses). Scholarships will be based on documented need and will be prioritized based on the following affiliations:
- DCADV Member Program Staff
- DCADV Task Force Members
- DCADV Certified DV Specialists
- DCADV Supporting Individual Members
- Staff person from a DCADV Supporting Organization (limited to one staff person per Supporting Organization per event)
Applicants must identify their membership in one or more of the above-mentioned categories, the training event they would like to attend, and document their financial need for a scholarship in order to attend such an event. For more information about requesting financial assistance, please contact DCADV at 302-658-2958 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
