Our Mission

The Technical Assistance Collaborative is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping our nation’s human services, health care, homelessness, and affordable housing systems implement policies and practices that empower people to live healthy, independent lives in the communities they choose.

This commitment requires that we work to advance racial and social justice by embodying racial justice principles, centering lived expertise in implementing our technical assistance strategies, and dismantling oppression both within and beyond TAC.
