Towns are selected to participate in the STMS program through a competitive application process. These towns are given two-years of concentrated monthly on-site and any time on-call technical services by the STMS staff following the four-point approach. Participants may remain in the program indefinitely, however the level of service provided by the program staff is reduced to “as necessary” assistance and visits after year two. (Communities not accepted into the program can still receive assistance. This assistance will be provided as scheduling allows.)
If your community is interested in applying to this program, a community representative must attend one of two information workshops. Please click this text for more information.
If you are unsure who to contact about this program please click this text for the regional division map.
