Technical Assistance for Local Agency Staff

MTC, the Association of Bay Area Governments and regional partners offer a variety of programs to city and county agencies. These programs help reach local and regional goals of greenhouse gas reduction, equity, affordability and resilience.

Two types of technical assistance are available — direct assistance and capacity building:

  • Direct Assistance is temporary, targeted support to an agency that works toward specific goals and tasks, and helps to bridge gaps in the agency's staffing or technical expertise. Examples include the PDA Technical and Staffing Assistance programs.
  • Capacity Building training and tools work to strengthen institutional knowledge, helping agency leadership and staff reach their goals independently. Capacity building programs can help agencies launch new programs, strategies or policies that are aligned with regional goals. Examples include Planning Innovations workshops and BayREN.
