Region VIII TACE Center Awarded to UNC/CTAT

The University of Northern Colorado and Center for Technical Assistance and Training (CTAT) are proud to announce that we have been chosen to receive the Technical Assistance and Continuing Education (TACE) award from the Rehabilitation Services Administration for the 2008-2013 term. This project establishes a Region VIII TACE Center, whose mission is to provide a broad integrated sequence of technical assistance (TA) and continuing education (CE) activities that focus on meeting recurrent and common training and organizational development needs for State VR agencies and their partners.  We will work to continue and expand services to State (VR) agencies, Community Rehabilitation Programs (CRPs), Centers for Independent Living (CILs), Client Assistance Programs (CAPs), American Indian Rehabilitation Programs (AIRs), Migrant and Seasonal Farmworker Programs (MSFWs), and other partners in the six state region. This collaborative project will bring together the staff, experience, resources, and established networks to work toward our shared purpose: to promote the employment of people with disabilities by providing quality TA and CE to State VR agencies and their partners in Region VIII. This unique partnership of academic, governmental, and community expertise ensures a broad base of knowledge and networks necessary to effectively deliver TA and CE and support the mission of the State-Federal Rehabilitation Program to enhance employment outcomes, independent functioning, and quality of life for people with disabilities.

We expect that there will be a brief start up period required to make the TACE Center fully operational but please contact us if you have immediate needs. Thank you for your continued partnership and we look forward to working with you in the future.
