About Us

What We Do


Co-directed by Drs. Kimberly Hoagwood  and Andrew Cleek, CTAC was founded in 2011 as the Children's Technical Assistance Center and expanded in 2012 as the Community Technical Assistance Center to offer technical assistance to all Article 31 mental health clinics in New York State.

In 2014, CTAC expanded its scope through the Managed Care Technical Assistance Center (MCTAC), working in conjunction with New York State to provide technical assistance to all behavioral health agencies in New York State in preparation for the transition to Medicaid managed care. CTAC provides training and support on quality improvement strategies -- including training on specific clinical skills and evidence-based practices.

We help agencies develop strong business and financial models to ensure sustainability in the changing healthcare landscape.
