Technical Assistance Grant Program

The Bay-Lake RPC Technical Assistance Grant Program is an annual program that provides an opportunity for member communities and counties to receive free professional planning assistance on small-scale plans or projects. Most projects fit within the Commission's work program and fall under the categories of community planning, economic development, geographic information systems (GIS), natural resources and coastal management, and transportation. See below for some project ideas.

Up to three projects from throughout the Bay-Lake Region will be selected to be carried out by Commission staff at no cost. Projects will be limited to a maximum of five days (40 hours) of staff time. Larger projects are also eligible as a means to get a project underway. Projects must begin and end in 2018.

This program does not impact the availability of Commission staff for the usual technical assistance phone calls and emails, guidance, letters of support, and informational presentations that are requested throughout the year.

The Commission is now accepting applications for this 2018 technical assistance grant program.
