National Training and Technical Assistance Partners (NTTAPs) possess unique subject matter expertise. NTTAPs develop, deliver, coordinate, and evaluate training and technical assistance (T/TA) for existing and potential health center grantees and look-alikes. NTTAPs help health centers serve diverse medically underserved populations. NTTAPs also assist health centers to preserve fiscal health, engage in effective workforce development, use health information technology and offer health care services in a way both culturally and linguistically fitting to their patients. This often takes the form of learning collaboratives, webinars, live trainings, learning modules, online articles, newsletters, toolkits, and fact sheets.
The NTTAPs that received FY 2023 funding will support health centers to:
- Deliver comprehensive care;
- Address emergent public health issues and health needs;
- Improve operational effectiveness and quality; and
- Advance health equity.
