Applications for free technical assistance are being accepted by SGA, a grantee of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. All applications must be submitted no later than 5:00pm EDT on October 5, 2016. SGA will select six communities to receive workshops using one of nine technical assistance tools. Three of these communities will be rural ( 20,000 residents or less).

The nine technical assistance tools are as follows:

  • Implementing smart growth 101 
  • Planning for economic and fiscal health 
  • Fiscal impact analysis  
  • Sustainable land use code audit 
  • Complete Streets Technical Assistance 
  • Parking audit
  • Cool planning: local strategies to slow climate change

  • (Re)Building Downtown

Additionally, three municipalities from the same state will be chosen to form a consortium through the Complete Streets Consortium Series, providing a unique opportunity for communities to enhance relationships between state and local stakeholders.
