Community Planning Assistance Teams

The Community Planning Assistance Team (CPAT) initiative at the American Planning Association pairs a multidisciplinary team of expert planning professionals with community members, key stakeholders, and relevant decision makers to address challenges including social equity and affordability, economic development, sustainability, consensus building, and urban design. Projects focus on localities with a demonstrated need for assistance, where planning resources and expertise may not otherwise be available.

Four to six teams take on a wide variety of topics each year.
