There is no set length of time for TA but it is anticipated that a typical Assignment will last 3-6 months, depending on the scope and depth of the challenges. TA will be provided by a predetermined blend of NACEDA staff and expert consultant partners through a series of key services critical to maintaining a healthy, sustainable, effective, and efficient nonprofit organization and achieving grant goals. NACEDA tries its best to pair TA recipients - not only with consultants with substantive knowledge – but also with consultants that have a deep understanding of your organization’s local context. These TA services will include, but are not limited to:

  • Strategic planning
