    word "assistance" with verb "happen"

    Hi everyone,
    could you help me? Is the following sentence correct?

    I'm trying to find a technical assistance, but I'm not sure if it will happen.

    Assistance is a non-countable noun and if is unnecessary but not wrong.

    This is grammatically correct: I'm trying to find technical assistance but I'm not sure it will happen.
