The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) establishes National Cooperative Agreements (NCAs) with organizations to provide national training and technical assistance (T/TA) to potential and existing section 330 funded health centers. These National Cooperative Agreements provide broad technical assistance as well as focused training on special populations including migrant and seasonal farmworkers, homeless, public housing, lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT), elderly, children in schools, and Asian Pacific populations. For information on special populations, please visit the CHAMPS Special Populations Overview webpage.
