Smart Future Planning Grant Request for Proposals (RFP)
The Department of Community Affairs (DCA) Office of Smart Growth (OSG) is now accepting applications for the 2008 round of Smart Future Planning Grants. Please visit https://njdcasage.state.nj.us/ to view the available grant opportunities. Please note that the DCA Office of Smart Growth will consider only those applications that meet the specific criteria described in the RFP, and only one proposal per applicant will be accepted. OSG is requiring mandatory technical assistance meetings. Failure to fulfill the technical assistance meeting will result in the automatic rejection of an application.
Due to popular demand, OSG will be holding one more meeting which will occur Wednesday, February 6, 2008 from 1:30 to 5:00 at DCA in room 129, first floor. This will be the last meeting they will have on all six grant categories. A member of the municipal staff is required to attend and may bring their Consultants. Consultants are not permitted to attend by themselves on behalf of the municipality.
In addition, due to the interest in the Smart Growth Grant program, OSG has extended the deadline for application submissions. The new submission deadline is Monday, March 31, 2008. The new deadline will be reflected in the SAGE system shortly.
For security purposes, OSG must know the name, title and affiliation of all attendees prior to the meeting. Please RSVP to Dawn Starling at (609) 292-7155 or DStarling@dca.state.nj.us.
If you have any other questions, please call the OSG office at (609) 292-7156.
Very truly yours,
William G. Dressel, Jr.
