The RHNTC is managed by JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc. (JSI). The RHNTC staff brings decades of experience building the capacity of personnel working in Title X and TPP programs through training and technical assistance (TTA). Our team consists of staff who develop and implement TTA; communicate TTA through various channels including the newsletter and social media; disseminate TTA via our knowledge management system (i.e. our website); and evaluate RHNTC TTA activities. Several TTA providers also serve as Grantee Liaisons who serve as the primary point of contact for grantees with the RHNTC and who periodically reach out to grantee staff to discuss training needs.
