The LGBTQ TA Center is designed to be collaborative, relationship based, balanced in approach, capacity enhancing, participatory, culturally and linguistically competent, data driven, and outcomes and evidence based.
Each LGBTQ pilot project grantee will be matched with a Technical Assistance (TA) Liaison that will be that agency’s primary LGBTQ TA Center contact. The TA Liaisons will be available to support grantees in completing grant requirements, building evidence for their programs’ effectiveness in addressing the prevention of mental health disparities, and building organizational capacity for sustainability.
Examples of the kinds of TA and training supports that pilot projects will receive include:
- Direct TA consultation delivered over the phone, via email, or on site
- Onsite, curriculum-based trainings
- Peer-to-peer learning forums to maximize cross-site knowledge
- Resource dissemination on requested topics
- Office hour consultation sessions
- Access to archived webinars and online courses
TA Liaisons will proactively outreach with the pilot projects to offer TA and training supports. Grantees can also request TA and training by contacting their TA Liaisons or using the T/TA Request Form.
