Periodic Review & Technical Assistance
Sweet Creek, near Mapleton (By Laren Woolley)
2013-15 Periodic Review and Technical Assistance

The Department of Land Conservation and Development offers grants to local and tribal governments to complete projects that update and modernize comprehensive plans, land use ordinances, development codes and other planning regulations. The grants are provided to jurisdictions completing a structured
Periodic Review process and to jurisdictions with stand-alone planning projects.
Periodic Review grants are used for completing tasks on currently established work programs. Work program preparation is also an eligible use of Periodic Review grant funds, after existing work program work tasks are funded. Periodic Review grant applications will be accepted on a rolling basis as long as funds are available.
Technical Assistance grant awards are guided by the Grants Allocation Plan. The allocation plan lists priorities such as:
  • Economic development
  • Streamlining planning processes
  • Updating codes to comply with changes in state law
  • Infrastructure finance planning
The department is accepting applications for the 2013-2015 biennium. Applicants are strongly encouraged to submit applications as early as possible. The deadline for Technical Assistance grant applications is October 4, 2013.
Application forms for Periodic Review and Technical Assistance grants for the 2013-2015 biennium are available below.
For assistance with preparing a grant application, or for questions about eligible projects, please contact your DLCD regional representative.
