ABOUT THE COMMUNITY INTEGRATION CENTER AT TAC
The Technical Assistance Collaborative, Inc. (TAC) established the Community Integration Center at TAC (CICTAC) in 2013 to serve as a national resource to government agencies and other clients to ensure that systems are equipped to facilitate the community integration of people with disabilities who are living in or at risk of entering institutional settings. The Center organizes the policy, services and housing design and financing, and government expertise of TAC to meet the technical assistance (TA) needs of government agencies seeking to promote community integration.
Since the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the U.S. Supreme Court's Olmstead decision in 1999, states continue to struggle to serve people with disabilities in the least restrictive, most integrated settings, resulting in overreliance on institutional care and unnecessary homelessness and incarceration. Through CICTAC, a team of nationally recognized human services and housing experts is available to provide a range of consulting services to assist government agencies and other clients with ADA and Olmstead compliance.
LEADERSHIP & TEAM
CICTAC is organized by a team of nationally recognized human services and housing experts at TAC and its affiliates who are available to assist clients through a team or individualized approach depending on specific client needs.
The Center is led by TAC's Executive Director, Kevin Martone. For more information or to retain services from the CICTAC team, contact Mr. Martone at 617-266-5657, extension 122.
NATIONAL ADVISORY BOARD
CICTAC is guided by a National Advisory Board composed of nationally recognized experts in the field. The Advisory Board informs the Center on policy direction, best practices and trends in community integration.
