Community Builders Now Accepting Applications for Community Assistance

Community Builders offers a limited number of community assistance opportunities for communities located within Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, New Mexico and Colorado. Through community assistance, Community Builders provides local leaders the tools and information to build prosperous, livable communities. 

Assistance projects provide communities with the tools and resources to spark meaningful on-the-ground progress, while building local capacity and creating success stories that inspire and inform other places.

Community Builders provides a range of services, including planning and design assistance, economic and market analysis, and community engagement. Each assistance project is taken on in close partnership with the selected community and tailored to meet specific local needs.

Community Builders assistance focuses on four key issues:

  1. Getting to Smarter Growth
  2. Housing for Community
  3. Building Resilient Economies
  4. Transportation for a New Economy

A competitive process is used to identify projects with a high likelihood of success and impact. Projects should address a compelling need or opportunity, have clear and realistic goals, demonstrate buy-in and support of key partners and leadership, and offer a strong prospect of implementation.

Applications for community assistance are being accepted until February 23, 2018. For more information or to apply, click here.
