Elevate Sustainability In Your Community With The Sustainable Design Assessment Team (SDAT) Program

American Institute of Architects

The SDAT program is a community assistance program of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) that focuses on the principles of sustainability; the program is managed by the AIA's Center for Communities by Design. The SDAT program provides an integrated design and policy based assessment for participating communities. The SDAT will bring a team of volunteer professionals (such as architects, urban designers, planners, hydrologists, economists, attorneys, and others) to work with community decision-makers and stakeholders to help them develop a vision and framework for a sustainable future. The SDAT program is based on the AIA's goal of helping communities create a sustainable relationship between humans, the natural environment, and place. By achieving balance between cultural, environmental, and economic systems, communities can sustain a place as a stage for human settlement.

The RFP for the 2007 SDATs is currently open and will remain open until November 30, 2006. The AIA will provide up to $25,000 in cash and in-kind contributions per SDAT in 2007. Communities will provide a $5,000 cash match as well as contribute other resources to the process.
