Tech Teams

Does your community have an infrastructure improvement project that needs to happen, but you aren't sure how to pay for it? Tech Team meetings are a resource that you may be able to take advantage of, to get you headed in the right direction. A Tech Team meeting is a get-together between community representatives and program staff to collaborate and solve infrastructure problems. Depending on your community's current needs, various opportunities will be available. Tech Teams may be formed to assist with understanding and prioritizing your overall infrastructure needs, developing specific infrastructure projects, and/or developing funding strategies for specific infrastructure projects.

The IACC holds an annual conference each fall.
