2023 Small Community Technical Assistance Program

For the last two years, the East Central Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission (ECWRPC) has been able to provide, with funding assistance through the US Economic Development Administration, technical assistance to communities in its planning area.

Once again, communities will have the opportunity to apply to have one of Wisconsin’s leading planning firms provide personalized design and consensus building that will bolster downtown or other redevelopment related projects. Our professionals can assist you by providing your community with one day workshop to address your community’s needs. We will bring design, marketing, and planning experts to your community at no cost to you (a workshop like this would typically cost more than $8,000). With your help, we will plan fun and interactive visioning sessions, generate drawings and ideas, and then present them to your stakeholders.

Topics we can assist with include streetscape design, park planning, branding and wayfinding, redevelopment, housing policy, and funding strategies.

Join communities like Winneconne, Hortonville, New London, and more who have all had successful planning workshops!

Recipients of technical assistance will be chosen based on: need, project potential, ability to organize, geography, inclusion, economic benefit & the ability to pay it forward.

Apply by Friday, September 1st, by filling out the simple set of questions HERE.
