What is the Great Lakes TCTAC?

The mission of the Great Lakes Environmental Justice Thriving Communities Technical Assistance Center (Great Lakes TCTAC) is to support community organizations in the Great Lakes region successfully navigate funding opportunities to access the resources they need to lead in the clean energy transition, pollution clean-up, and green workforce development.

Currently there are immense federal funding opportunities that focus on community leadership driving solutions for climate resiliency and healthy environments. The TCTAC provides services to communities in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio,  Wisconsin and the 35 federally recognized Tribal nations within the Great Lakes region. In doing so, we seek to help communities make the most of this incredible moment and leverage unprecedented state and federal funds to transform their communities for generations to come.

Our network of partners are located throughout the region and include the Community Engineering Corps, Environmental Protection Network, Great Plains Institute, Midwest Tribal Energy Resources Association and the Extension schools at Michigan State University, The Ohio State University, Purdue University, University of Illinois, University of Minnesota, and University of Wisconsin.

In Wisconsin, UW-Madison Extension and Clean Energy Community Initiative (CECI) are partnering to assist Wisconsin remote rural local and tribal governments and community organizations identify the best funding for their goals and link them to the resources of the TCTAC.
