Illinois Head Start Training & Technical Assistance (T/TA) Center
In September 2010, the Office of Head Start Region 5 announced the Illinois Head Start State Training & Technical Assistance (T/TA) Center contract award to STG International, Inc. (STGi) as part of the redesigned national Head Start T/TA System. STGi has been contracted to establish a T/TA center in each of the six states in Region 5 (Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, and Wisconsin) to create a regional T/TA consortium.The Illinois State T/TA Center operated by STGi replaces the former two-contractor T/TA system where the Illinois Head Start State-Based Training & Technical Assistance Office (IL SBTTAO) contract under Booz Allen Hamilton (BAH) provided T/TA at the statewide level and through cluster events and the separate Grantee Performance Support Specialist (GPSS) contract awarded to STGi provided individual TA to local grantees.
Under this iteration of the T/TA System, the Illinois Head Start T/TA Center will provide direct support and technical assistance to the Head Start & Early Head Start grantees in the state to improve their capacity to deliver high quality services and improve outcomes for Head Start children.
