The TA team will assist each county with identifying their training and TA needs in specific areas. If the requests are best met in a group setting, group TA events will be developed. If the request is best met by serving an individual county team, the TA provider can respond with the assistance that seems to be most appropriate. Some requests can be met with phone calls or emails, as well.
