National Vacant Properties Campaign Invites Proposals for Technical Assistance Program
Deadline: January 14, 2005

The National Vacant Properties Campaign (<a href=""></a>), a partnership of Smart Growth America, the Local Initiatives Support Corporation, and the International City/County Management Association, is offering a new service to localities to assist in defining practices, policies, and legislation that can help them address problems associated with vacant, blighted, and abandoned properties. The National Vacant Properties Campaign was founded in 2002 to create a national movement to support the reclamation of vacant and abandoned properties across the United States.

With funding from the New York City-based Surdna Foundation, the program will provide four to six selected communities with significant technical assistance from an experienced team of policy, legal, planning, and development professionals. Communities will be selected to receive technical assistance based on criteria such as the existence of a serious vacant properties problem and the presence of a local partnership of key stakeholders with significant financial and human resources who are committed to tackling the problem. The value of the program’s assistance in each selected city will range from about $30,000 to $70,000.

Applicants can include a partnership of one or more of the following: local governments, nonprofit organizations, foundations, corporations, and intermediaries.

For complete program information, eligibility requirements, and application procedures, see the LISC Web site.
