The East St. Louis Action Research Project's Neighborhood Technical Assistance Center (NTAC) provides a local presence in East St. Louis to assistance the increasing number of residents and neighborhood organizations active in physical, economic or social development projects. We seek to enhance the quality of life in East St. Louis and the Enterprise Communities of Alorton, Brooklyn, Centreville, and Washington Park. The NTAC specifically assists residents, non-profit groups, faith-based organizations and municipal agencies in formulating strategies for meeting their technical assistance and training needs in the areas of community organization, neighborhood planning, building and urban design, grant writing, digital technology and non-profit management by connecting them to Faculty and students on the University of Illinois' Urbana Campus.
