Technical Assistance for Measure 110 Providers and Allies

The Health Justice Recovery Alliance is proud to offer technical assistance and capacity building support free of charge for community-based providers of Measure 110 services! Technical Assistance workshops will take place regularly to support those setting up organizational operations and financial systems as they prepare to absorb Measure 110 funding.

Technical Assistance (TA) is broadly defined as support to help non-profits acquire any specialized service or skill that is not currently resident within their organization, but which it may need in order to operate more effectively or strengthen sustainability. HJRA has created a TA program specifically to support Measure 110 grant recipients, and in-turn, support the effective implementation of Measure 110.

HJRA’s TA consultants specialize in a range of non-profit and government contract experience. TA support can include but is not limited to:

  • OHA Grant Reporting
  • Gov. Contract Requirements
  • Grant Sourcing and Writing
  • Board Development
  • Fundraising
  • Fiscal Responsibilities
  • Program Development
  • Strategic Partnerships
  • Strategic Planning
  • Organizational Development
  • Executive Coaching
  • Board Development
  • Accounting and setting up Books
  • Staffing and Hiring

HJRA’s TA consultants have been utilized by community addiction and recovery support organizations in a variety of areas, including the development of grant reporting, HR policies and procedures, board development, and fundraising and strategic planning, to name a few. Does your organization need one-on-one support? Or do you have suggestions for a future workshop topic? If so, please submit a request email for TA to discuss the unique needs of your organization.
