More Information About EPA Smart Growth Grants


Grants Awarded in 2014

EPA awarded the Maryland Department of Planning (MDP) a cooperative agreement to maintain and further develop the Smart Growth Information Clearinghouse, a web-based national information clearinghouse (www.smartgrowth.org) Link to EPA's External Link Disclaimer that functions as a "one stop shop" for information on effective smart growth approaches that can help communities ensure their development choices deliver environmental, economic, and quality-of-life benefits. The clearinghouse also serves as the virtual home of the Smart Growth Network Link to EPA's External Link Disclaimer, a nationally recognized coalition of leadership organizations that have formally endorsed the principles of smart growth. MDP will work with the Smart Growth Network partners to ensure that the web content reflects their activities and includes field-tested best practices, case studies, and information on emerging issues. This award was made in response to a competitive request for proposals titled "OSC Request for Proposals for National Smart Growth Conference Planning" (EPA-OP-OSC-13-01). Submissions for that RFP were due May 12, 2014.
