Smart Growth Implementation Assistance 2009 Request for Applications
The Development, Community, and Environment Division in EPA’s Office of
Policy, Economics, and Innovation is seeking applications for technical
assistance from communities that want to incorporate smart growth in
their future development to meet environmental and other community
goals. Eligible entities are tribal, local, regional, and state
governments, and nonprofit organizations that have a demonstrated
partnership with a governmental entity. Applications are due at 5:00 pm
EST, April 23, 2009.

EPA has identified some key areas in which communities are likely to
benefit from technical assistance:

         Climate change (both mitigation of and adaptation to)
         Green job development
         Corridor redevelopment
         Green building development
         Suburban retrofitting
         Disaster resiliency

Proposals are not limited to requests for technical assistance in only
these thematic areas; other topics for assistance are welcome and
encouraged, provided they demonstrate cutting-edge challenges and the
possibility of replicable solutions.

EPA is soliciting applications for assistance with either policy
analysis or public participatory processes. The type of work may
incorporate policy analysis and review, planning and visioning
processes, scorecard/ranking criteria development and assessment, and/or
other elements pertinent to the role of the applicant.

Selected communities or states 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. EPA plans to assist three
to five communities over a period of twelve months. The Agency
anticipates announcing the selected communities in fall of 2009.
