Thinking about applying for one of our 2015 free technical assistance workshops? Don’t wait! There are only two weeks left to apply.

Each year, Smart Growth America offers a limited number of community workshops at no charge. Our experts work with your community to understand your goals, show how smart growth development strategies can help achieve them, and develop a plan to make it happen. Now in its fourth year, our free technical assistance program has helped over 50 communities grow in ways that benefit both residents and businesses while protecting the environment and preserving a sense of place.

Want us to help you make your community more livable, sustainable and vibrant? Apply for one of the twelve workshops we offer through the program. Learn more about each workshop here:

Any unit or subdivision of local government, Indian tribe, or regional government is eligible to apply. Communities may apply for more than one workshop, but must submit separate applications for each. Applications are due by Thursday, October 23, 2014 at 5:00 PM EDT.

About the program
Smart Growth America’s technical assistance program is made possible by a grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Sustainable Communities under their Building Blocks for Sustainable Communities Program. The Building Blocks program funds quick, targeted assistance to communities that face common development problems.

Workshops for hire
In addition to our annual free workshops, Smart Growth America’s technical assistance workshops are available year-round for a fee. Our expert staff can help your community achieve its development goals. Learn more about our workshops for hire.
