The TECC Materials TA Business Rules document highlights all the approved TA types TECC can provide, as well as estimated timeframes for each type of work. The document also details what projects are accountable for when submitting a TA request, and information about translations and consumer testing. This document can be found on our website in the Technical Assistance section.
Funded projects should submit educational materials that are being used in the field, along with a summary of consumer testing results, to TECC using MatTrack. Some materials may be chosen by our educational materials experts and CTPP for statewide adaptation, to be included in our catalog.
