Technical Assistance (TA)

TA and consultation involves mutual problem-solving and collaboration on a range of issues, which may include program development, program evaluation, communications and message framing, needs assessment, and policy and guidelines formulation, as well as site visits and review/advisory functions. 

Staff and faculty at Centers of Excellence in MCH Programs provide TA/consultation and subject matter expertise to the MCH field, such as supporting Title V agencies’ needs assessments and advancing selected state and national performance measures. TA may be a one-time encounter or ongoing activity of brief or extended frequency depending on the needs of the state or organization, and may be geared to the needs of several states or a HRSA region

TA is provided on an individualized basis by Center staff, faculty and/or qualified trainees and include research and data analysis, committee membership or advisory service, communications development and more.
