What is Technical Assistance (TA)?

Technical Assistance (TA) refers to a wide range of supports that outside professionals can provide to programs. This includes resources and ideas to help programs work through challenges, plan and implement programs, and create new tools for their community. TA is not limited to "technical" support, such as computer or IT issues.
