Targeted Technical Assistance

Our technical assistance work complements and enhances our direct grant investments. We help accelerate community transition planning efforts in partnership with local leaders who are committed to taking action. We work with grassroots organizations, government, workforce and community development agencies, community foundations, and a range of other stakeholders.
