Application for the Growth & Accessibility Planning (GAP) Technical Assistance

Thank you for being interested in the Growth and Accessibility Planning (GAP) Technical Assistance Program. The application intake for the fiscal year 2023 has now ended.

GAP-TA Program Application

The GAP-TA application is considered an expression of interest that contains 10 to 20 questions on the following items and takes approximately 15 to 30 minutes to complete.

  • Type of Agency/Jurisdiction
  • Contact Info
  • The focus of the technical assistance request
  • The desired end output or outcomes (500 words)
  • Preliminary scope outline (1000 words)
  • Letter of support
  • A map or shapefile of the area where the proposed work will be performed
  • A map or a shapefile of the study area/corridor

An entity or jurisdiction can utilize one application for submitting technical assistance requests for multiple GAP-TA Components. For example, a county can apply for Component 1 and Component 4 in the same application.

The application does not have to be completed in one session as there is a “Save and Continue Later” option. You will need to enter an email address and receive a unique hyperlink to that email to use when you wish to return to the application. Once an application is submitted, an email with a PDF copy will be sent from noreply@alchemer.com to the email addresses listed as the primary and secondary contact.

Post-Application Steps

The timeline for the FY23 GAP Technical Assistance is included below. OIPI will start evaluating applications in November and will contact the primary application contact for any questions and clarifications.
