Tuition Changes for GOTs

Repeated reductions in G.R.E.A.T. funding over the last several years have made it increasingly difficult for the G.R.E.A.T. Program to meet the many requests for training that it continues to receive. For many years, G.R.E.A.T. was able to provide training free of charge through a grant from the Department of Justice and could deliver the training wherever there was enough interest to fill a training class. Unfortunately, the current level of funding no longer supports that practice. Current plans call for centrally located trainings in five geographical regions of the U.S., in order to reach as many areas of the country as possible with the very limited budget. G.R.E.A.T.
