Community Planning Assistance Teams

Volunteer Experts Working With Communities To Create Solutions

The Community Planning Assistance Teams (CPAT) program organizes multidisciplinary teams of planning professionals that volunteer their time to work with local stakeholders to create a vision plan and implementation strategy. CPAT offers expertise in a diverse range of issues facing communities. CPAT brings planning resources and opportunities to communities and strengthens the ability of residents and other stakeholders to influence and determine decisions that affect their quality of life.

APA is not currently accepting community submissions or volunteer applications for new CPAT projects.
