Municipal Assistance Program

 

 

All projects will be led by a UConn student intern and overseen by the UConn TAB team. Each project deliverable will include a summative report put together by the UConn student Interns. The UConn TAB MAP follows the UConn academic semesters and has three rounds each year.
The MAP opens a Request for Proposals (RFPs) 3 times a year:

  • In July, for consideration in the Fall semester. Services supported include research for EPA brownfield grant proposals.
  • In November, for consideration in the Spring semester. Services supported include development of brownfields inventories, data collection for brownfields sites, technical document reviews, and evaluation of redevelopment options.
  • In May, for consideration in the Summer semester. Services supported include development of brownfields inventories, data collection for brownfields sites, technical document reviews, and evaluation of redevelopment options.
