Selected applicants for the Technical Assistance Scholarship Program will each receive up to 200 hours of direct technical assistance from a team of experts that specializes in relevant aspects of vacant, abandoned and problem property reclamation. Community Progress will select up to three applicants that submit strong and complete applications, demonstrating innovation, need, staff capacity and financial support to implement and sustain findings and recommendations. With this program, Community Progress aims to develop innovative models and approaches that will not only serve the technical assistance recipient, but will also help to inform the stabilization and revitalization efforts of communities across the country.   

The Technical Assistance Scholarship Program is focused on the following areas: Data and Information Systems, Tax Collection and Enforcement Reform, Strategic Code Enforcement, Land Bank and Land Banking Program Evaluation, and Vacant Land Maintenance and Reuse Strategies.
