About the Technical Assistance Division
The Technical Assistance (TA) Division's primary role is to provide assistance to local governments on issues related to economic development and community improvements. The most recognizable function is through the preparation and administration of grant and loan applications. The TA Division also provides management support services, solid waste assistance, and remains flexible in providing additional assistance to local governments as new needs arise.
The TA Division provides administrative support to the North Mississippi Mayors Association, The PUL Alliance, and the GM&O Rails-to-Trails Recreational District of North Mississippi. The division also maintains a close working relationship with local, state, and regional economic developers by assisting in the preparation of financial packages and supporting their recruitment and expansion efforts.
