Across the country, TAC provides expert technical assistance and consultation to support efforts by government agencies, providers, and other stakeholders to improve the lives of vulnerable populations. Our services are applied in Focus Areas that are critical to our clients and the priority populations they serve.


Progress toward preventing and ending homelessness is achieved through the strategic use of resources and Housing First strategies. TAC’s consultants include experts on addressing chronic, youth, family, and Veteran homelessness.

Affordable Housing

In response to the enormous and growing demand for rental housing that meets the needs of extremely low-income people — including those with disabilities — TAC helps states and communities develop policies and financing approaches that can increase the supply.

Olmstead & Community Integration

The 1999 Olmstead decision affirmed the right of people with disabilities to live in integrated settings. TAC helps states comply with federal standards by increasing their supportive housing supply, identify funding sources, and improving access to community-based services.


TAC is fluent in federal Medicaid rules and regulations, and skilled at leveraging Medicaid to promote access to services that help people with disabilities, youth in foster care, and people experiencing homelessness to live at home and in the community.
