Partnership for Local Action (PLA)
On this page:
In November 2010, EPA Region 8 launched the Partnership for Local Action, a voluntary short-term opportunity to help municipalities and tribes improve community sustainability and achieve multiple benefits. The goal of the Partnership for Local Action was to create networks to help communities sustain long-term reductions in energy, water, and waste while increasing sustainability and positioning municipalities to meet the environmental, economic, and social challenges of the future.
Municipalities with populations 50,000 and under who are signatories of the Mayor’s Climate Protection Agreement and/or formula communities receiving American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funding were invited to participate in the Partnership. Direct mailings were sent to mayors and support staff in 63 communities on November 3rd, 2010. The 8 communities profiled below were selected on a first-come-first-served basis. With the support of mentor municipalities and graduate students, EPA worked with participants to design initiatives, programs, and projects to meet community goals and provided assistance and recommendations for implementation.
The Partnership for Local Action concluded in September 2012.
