Technical Assistance for Smart Growth Implementation Assistance

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 greenhouse gas reduction goals?

Do you need help analyzing guidelines for school investments that best fit your state or community?

Do you need to retrofit a commercial corridor?

Or coordinate your community's smart growth design with an active aging program?

Smart Growth Implementation Assistance program

The Development, Community, and Environment Division in U.S. EPA's Office of Policy, Economics, and Innovation is responding to this need by implementing the Smart Growth Implementation Assistance program. Through this program, a team of multidisciplinary experts 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 solicited applications from 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.

Communities that Received Brownfield Smart Growth Implementation Assistance

EPA selected six communities for assistance in the 2007 round of applications: Atlanta Regional Commission; Denver, Colorado; California Department of Transportation; Greensboro, North Carolina; Phoenix, Mesa, and Valley Metro Rail, Arizona; and Sanitation District No. 1 of Northern Kentucky. Click here for more information on the projects that received assistance.

Applications were accepted until May 8, 2008. Click here for a list of the communities that were selected. While that deadline has passed, other technical assistance programs are linked from the following pages:
