Training & Technical Assistance Centers

The Administration for Children and Families' (ACF) Office of Head Start and Office of Child Care are collaborating to more effectively provide training and technical assistance (T/TA) across early care and education (ECE) programs. This joint T/TA system supports ECE programs and educators in delivering quality services to children and their families across the country. In 2015, six National Centers were launched to promote excellence through high-quality, practical resources and approaches that build ECE program capacity. The Centers also support consistent practices across communities, states, tribes, and territories.

Currently, the Office of Head Start (OHS) offers T/TA program staff support in their delivery of quality services to low-income children and families. OHS T/TA consists of three components: direct funding to grantees; regional T/TA specialists; and the National Centers.
