Oct. 6, 2020 - The CWDC is excited to announce the launch of the Winter/Spring 2021 Technical Assistance Modules. These modules have been created in an effort to streamline technical assistance offered through the CWDC to our talent development network partners. This model helps ensure resources are spent when a community is ready and motivated to take on a project, and creates a process to better respond to the needs of communities through targeted outreach and technical assistance opportunities.
Please review the modules currently open for applications listed below and visit the CWDC website for additional details. To apply for one of the open modules, apply through the technical assistance portal.
Note: In order to submit an application, you must be logged in to the technical assistance portal. First-time visitors will be prompted to set up login information. Please use a work email address as your username and create a unique password. Click ‘apply’ if you are interested in applying for a module.
