About TAC

A national nonprofit organization based in Boston, Massachusetts, TAC advances proven solutions to the housing and community support services needs of low-income people with disabilities and people who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness.

Since 1992, TAC’s experienced consultants have provided policy leadership, technical assistance, and expert consultation to federal, state, and local government agencies, policymakers, advocates, foundations, and service providers.

TAC’s collaborative model employs multidisciplinary teams of consultants with public and nonprofit sector experience in administering and providing services for people involved in mental health, substance use, developmental disabilities, child welfare, juvenile justice, homeless, and affordable housing systems. Led by nationally recognized experts – many of whom have served as senior government officials – the TAC team has additional depth thanks to a strong network of affiliates and strategic partners who share our mission.

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.

“TAC is a leader in shaping policy and helping government design and implement affordable housing and human service strategies that work for people.”
