Now Seeking 2020 Technical Assistance Project Requests

ECWRPC is again seeking Technical Assistance project requests from its eight member counties and their communities for consideration in its 2020 Work Program. A wide variety of small-scale planning and GIS mapping assistance is available from the
Commission under low-cost or no-cost arrangements depending on the project type.

Please note that the Commission’s new cost-shared fee schedule was approved in 2018 and continues to be implemented for some types of projects under the Technical Assistance Program. The Commission will be reviewing this schedule in July and some minor changes may be made based on recent experiences. Even though some cost-share may be required, the fee structure still allows for significant cost-sharing by the Commission for your project. There is great value in having the Commission assist your county/community as compared to hiring a consultant or completing projects in-house. Reduced costs, our staffs’ expertise and knowledge of local issues, and the provision of regional context should make the Commission a top consideration. If your community plans on taking advantage of this program, you may also need to ensure that the costs are accounted for in your entity’s 2020 budget. If projects are selected, a short scope of work and contract document will be provided to formalize the arrangement.

Please see the Technical Assistance Program Fact Sheet and supporting information which outlines the parameters of the program, and provides ideas for project development:

In addition, Commission staff will be hosting two separate Technical Assistance Program “Open House” events at its office in Menasha on:

Wed., June 19, 2019 from 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
Wed., Sept. 18, 2019 from 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.

If you have questions about East Central’s services, or would like to discuss a project idea for submission under this program, our staff will be available during these times to meet with you and help determine a scope of work and cost estimate (if applicable). Please let us know if you plan to attend and the nature of your project idea so that we can better accommodate your visit.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding our programs and services in the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact Eric Fowle at or via phone at (920) 751-4770.

The deadline for project submission was Friday, October 4, 2020.
