The American Institute of Architects (AIA) Center for Communities by Design is pleased to release the 2011 Sustainable Design Assessment Team program (SDAT) Application Packet. The application solicits submissions for inclusion in the 2011 SDAT program.

The SDAT program upholds the AIA Design Assistance team values of utilizing a multidisciplinary team approach; ensuring the objectivity of all participating team members; and requiring broad, inclusive public participation and support.
