What Can the NHAC Do for You?

Because we have several new people (welcome!) who have recently joined the HIDTA family, we thought we’d take this opportunity to introduce ourselves. We also want to remind those of you who know us, that the National HIDTA Assistance Center (NHAC) is here for you!  Here’s a little background about us and an overview of our services: The NHAC has its own budget and supports the HIDTA program nationwide. Like regional HIDTAs, the NHAC has its own director, but is governed by the HIDTA Directors Committee (HDC) which serves as executive board.

Our four units are here to serve the 32 HIDTAs across the country and include Management & Coordination, Finance, Training and Media. Click this link to watch a brief presentation and learn how the NHAC can “assist” you.
