Federal technical assistance (TA)[1] centers, research institutions, national organizations, and philanthropic funders offer a range of TA opportunities. Technical assistance has the potential to facilitate and support the movement of states,[2] regions, programs, grantees, and even individuals toward their vision and goals, but information on where, when, and how to apply for these wide-ranging opportunities with experts is not always clear. Further, many more questions arise for states as they begin to negotiate the TA terrain, e.g., how should the learning from the TA be incorporated into practice within the state; how should TA align with already established visions and priorities; and how do states ensure staff doesn’t end up overworked, over-deployed, or as merely superficial participants in these opportunities? This summary aims to address these and other issues by offering “10 Tips” – gleaned from interviews with state leaders and TA providers in 2017.
