Community Action: Post-Sandy Assistance

gup_walker_philly_st_600Global Green USA is offering free sustainable urban planning assistance to communities impacted by Hurricane Sandy. In collaboration with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Global Green USA has opened a special application period for our Sustainable Neighborhood Assessment assistance specifically for communities impacted by Hurricane Sandy. This free assistance is being provided under Global Green USA's grant from the U.S. EPA's Office of Sustainable Communities' Building Blocks for Sustainable Communities Program. This is an opportunity to access a team of experts who will help create a plan for a specific site or neighborhood that could then serve as a catalyst or model for broader community-wide rebuilding. The result will be a more resilient community that addresses the challenges posed by sea level rise, storm surge, storm intensity, and climate change.

Two communities will be selected to receive expert guidance from our green urbanism experts through an intensive three-day site visit. The Request for Proposals (RFP) is online and open from March 11 through April 30.
