The TOGETHER NORTH JERSEY Local Government Capacity Grant Program (LGCGP) is providing financial and/or technical assistance to county and municipal members of the TOGETHER NORTH JERSEY Steering Committee to conduct outreach, analysis, coordination and planning activities that help build the capacity of local governments to support and materially advance the development of a Regional Plan for Sustainable Development for the 13-county North Jersey region. Under this program, eligible counties and cities have an opportunity to undertake supplemental planning activities — some of which may be performed by their current staff in-house and some of which may require technical assistance support  from pre-qualified contractors, interns or members of the TNJ Project Team.

Below are a brief discussion of the topics currently being undertaken and/or proposed for funding as supplemental planning activities.   Several projects are now underway and should be completed before the fall of 2014. In some cases, RFPs for Technical Assistance are in the process of being issued by TNJ to firms on the pre-qualified contractor lists in a competitive selection process.
