In February 2024, the RHNTC selected a group of Title X Family Planning Program and Teen Pregnancy Prevention (TPP) Program grantee representatives to serve on our Grantee Training Advisory Council (GTAC). The GTAC is an advisory group that supports the continuous quality improvement of RHNTC activities. GTAC members provide valuable input to ensure the relevance, appropriateness, and impact of training and technical assistance (TTA) provided to personnel working in Title X and TPP programs. 

Specifically, members meet virtually on a monthly basis to work collaboratively with the RHNTC, the Office of Population Affairs (OPA), and the Office on Women’s Health (OWH) to: 

  • Advise the RHNTC on Title X and TPP TTA current and emerging needs and preferences to help inform the RHNTC’s TTA activities
  • Provide input on draft TTA resources through content reviews and pilots
  • Identify best and promising practices in the field related to service provision and program management to help the RHNTC respond to needs in the field
