Deadline to apply for Smart Growth America's free technical assistance is this Thursday, October 25th

Smart Growth America’s 2012 free technical assistance workshops are a great opportunity for communities interested in smarter growth – but the application window is closing soon!

Communities interested in applying for one of our 12 workshops types have a few more days to submit an application. The deadline to apply is this Thursday, October 25, 2012 at 5:00 PM EDT.

Applications will be accepted online or by email (PDF). Any questions may be directed to assistance [at] smartgrowthamerica [dot] org. 

Selected communities will receive a free-of-cost one-to-two day workshop with one of Smart Growth America’s experts to discuss and make a plan for how they can move forward with their smart growth goals. 15 communities received free technical assistance last year: learn more about our past workshops.

Smart Growth America’s free technical assistance is made possible by U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Sustainable Communities under its Building Blocks for Sustainable Communities Program. The Building Blocks program funds quick, targeted assistance to communities that face common development problems. Three other nonprofit organizations—Cascade Land Conservancy, Global Green USA and Project for Public Spaces—also received competitively awarded grants under this program this year to help communities get the kinds of development they want.
