EPA Technical Assistance Building Healthy Communities

Request for Applications: Smart Growth Implementation Assistance
Opportunities for Technical Assistance for Communities Interested in Building Healthy Communities for Active Aging.

Are you trying to encourage smart growth activities that will help prepare for older adults in your community? 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 economic development 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?

The Development, Community, and Environment Division in U.S. EPA’s Office of Policy, Economics, and Innovation is responding to this need by issuing a request for applications for the Smart Growth Implementation Assistance program. Through this program, a team of multidisciplinary experts will 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 is soliciting 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. Applications will be accepted until March 8, 2007. [deadline]

For more information and application materials, please go to

    from the EPA Aging Initiative List-Serv

EPA has developed five fact sheets for older adults and their caregivers related to environmental health topics. Many of these fact sheets have been translated into the common languages spoken for older adults and their caregivers. The purple series was also created to reach individuals with limited reading ability, for those persons reading at roughly the 5th grade level. ( See http://epa.gov/aging/resources/factsheets/index.htm#lowlit ) In addition, on line, one can find copies of the fact sheets with large print for persons with limited vision http://epa.gov/aging/resources/factsheets/index.htm#lowvision Fact sheets are available in hard copy at no cost or can be downloaded at the EPA Aging Initiative website. http://www.epa.gov/aging/resources/factsheets/index.htm#fs

[If rural communities need assistance with developing a project, I know of a candidate, willing to relocate.]
