Technical Assistance Services for Communities (TASC)
“I would want other communities interested in technical assistance to know that they should not be discouraged by a lack of knowledge or information in pursuing their goals. TASC has the expertise and skills needed to guide communities in the direction of their choice.”
- Community representative for the Red Panther Chemical Company TASC project
Welcome to the Technical Assistance Services for Communities (TASC) program website.
The purpose of TASC is to provide non-advocacy technical assistance services at no cost to communities to empower them to substantively participate in addressing environmental issues and actions which impact their community.
EPA staff work to furnish the information, education or support that is required by communities to be effectively engaged in Agency environmental actions, decisions and projects. However, in some instances supplemental technical assistance may be necessary for a community to fully address its environmental concerns and engage in the established decision-making process.
The TASC website describes program services, highlights projects and resources, and provides contact information for communities interested in learning more. The following documents will provide you with an overview of the TASC program:
