Opportunity For Free, Green Development Training; Which Communities Are Interested?

Does your community want greener, more cohesive, and more vibrant neighborhoods? Is there a significant project on the horizon that your community wants to make the most of?

Global Green, a national non-profit organization, and a team of experts from across the country are offering no-cost sustainable neighborhood design technical assistance to a select number of US communities.

Our assistance is based on the LEED for Neighborhood Development standard, which provides a nationally recognized method for creating neighborhoods that are walkable, bikeable, resource-efficient, and equitable.

This free assistance is being provided under a grant to Global Green from the US EPA’s Office of Sustainable Communities Building Blocks for Sustainable Communities Program. http://www.epa.gov/smartgrowth/buildingblocks.htm
Attached is an RFP that explains the program in more detail and has information on how to apply. 

Applications are submitted online at http://globalgreen.org/leedndtechassist 

In addition, there is a webinar about this program scheduled for November 9th at 2PM eastern. 

Please join us if you can. http://www.smartgrowthamerica.org/2011/11/03/upcoming-webinar-building-blocks-for-sustainable-communities-technical-assistance-overview/

The deadline for applications is November 23rd. We hope to hear from some of you and would be grateful if you could forward this opportunity to folks in your networks who might be interested in this opportunity.

Best Regards (and apologies for any cross posts).
