On a fee-for-service basis, the program, which was funded through external sales, provided: technical assistance and consultation, training, assessment, and research and evaluation to state and federal governmental agencies, provider organizations and others facing these issues. Since 1997, the program has provided training and consultation in nearly every U.S. state and in five foreign countries.
