TAP trainings are open to everyone with registration and payment of a modest fee. Special rates are offered to staff of housing authorities, and staff of TAP member sites have unlimited access to trainings without paying registration fees.

If your site is a TAP member, we can explore with you the possibility of scheduling a “closed” training at your site for a minimum of 15 attendees. You can discuss this with Carol St. Cyr at 617.854.1090. Also, your suggestions on topics, course content and diversity of TAP trainers are welcome, so please contact me at 617.854.1084 or lmcmahan@masshousing.com.
