Does your community have an infrastructure improvement project that needs to happen, but you aren’t sure how to proceed? Tech team meetings are a resource to get you headed in the right direction. A tech team meeting is a get-together between community representatives and program staff. The goal is to collaborate and solve infrastructure problems. Depending on your community’s current needs, various opportunities will be available. Tech Teams assist with:
• Understanding and prioritizing your overall infrastructure needs.
• Developing specific infrastructure projects.
• Developing funding strategies for specific infrastructure projects.
To complete the online request for a tech team, please visit the IACC technical assistance web page.
