Project Concept Plans and Meetings
TOD and Regular LCDA Applicants: If you are applying for the 2019 LCDA-TOD or Regular LCDA development rounds, a Project Concept Plan is required to be submitted in June or July, in advance of the full application deadlines in July and August. The purpose of the Project Concept Plans is to allow Livable Communities staff to give feedback on the project's fit with the program goals and potential eligible activities. As part of the Project Concept Plan review process, applicants will be required to schedule meeting with Livable Communities staff to review their proposed project. Livable Communities staff are also available to meet before Project Concept Plan submittals, so that City/County/HRA/EDA staff can introduce their projects to Livable Communities Staff. Livable Communities Staff will give early feedback on the project.

Application Materials
2019 application materials will be posted on the LCA website as soon as they are available.
