EPA's Smart Growth Office announces a Request for Initial Proposals (RFIP) for
"Economic Development Strategies that Support Environmentally-Friendly
Development."

EPA is seeking proposals from eligible organizations to identify and describe specific economic development strategies that have supported smart growth outcomes. The International Economic Development Council defines the goal of economic development as "improving the economic well being of a community through efforts that entail job creation, job retention, tax base enhancements, and quality of life." Communities nationwide employ a variety of techniques to attain economic development goals and the outcomes have differed widely. EPA is interested in finding examples where economic development strategies have protected environmental resources and improved community quality of life by supporting smart growth outcomes.

Initial proposals must be submitted to U.S. EPA by Monday, July 19, 2004 by 5:00 PM East Coast Time. Award announcements are expected to be made in November 2004. The RFIP is available in HTML and PDF formats at:
http://www.epa.gov/smartgrowth/pdf/econdvl.pdf.

EPA anticipates awarding one assistance agreement under this solicitation and expects to have approximately $40,000 available for first year funding. Contact Mary Kay Santore via e-mail at [email protected] or by phone at 202-566-2859 with any questions about this solicitation.
