U.S. EPA Offers Smart Growth Technical Assistance  Torma-@epamail.epa.gov

Request for Applications: Smart Growth Implementation Assistance

Free technical assistance available!

Are you trying to encourage specific smart growth techniques like
transit-oriented development? Or direct your state department of
transportation investments to better support smart growth? Are you
looking to use smart growth to reach economic development goals? Do you
need help ensuring that school investments help your state or community
meet multiple goals? Do you need to retrofit a commercial corridor? Or
coordinate your community's smart growth design with an active aging

The Development, Community, and Environment Division in U.S. EPA's
Office of Policy, Economics, and Innovation is responding to this need
by issuing a request for applications for the Smart Growth
Implementation Assistance program. Through this program, a team of
multidisciplinary experts will provide free technical assistance to
communities, regions, or states that want to develop in ways that meet
environmental and other local or regional goals.

Communities, regions, and states around the country are interested in
building stronger neighborhoods, protecting their environmental
resources, enhancing public health, and planning for development, but
they may lack the tools, resources, or information to achieve these
goals. EPA can help applicants overcome these roadblocks by providing
evaluation tools and expert analysis.

EPA is soliciting applications from states or communities that want help
with either policy analysis or public participatory processes. Selected
communities will receive assistance in the form of a multi-day visit
from a team of experts organized by EPA and other national partners to
work with local leaders. Applications will be accepted until March 8,
