Application Available: TAPs in COG-Designated Activity Centers – ULI Partners with Council of Governments to Deliver Upcoming TAPs

ULI Washington, in conjunction with the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments (COG), will offer up to three (3) Technical Assistance Panels (TAPs) in the coming year that will focus on identifying priority, catalytic strategies to maximize the impact of investments in COG-designated Activity Centers. A signature ULI Program, TAPs are an intensive and collaborative exercise where 10-12 senior-level real-estate and land-use experts work together over a concentrated day-and-a-half to develop unbiased, market-based feedback on a specific local development or land-use challenge. The TAP culminates in a formal presentation of recommendations, as well as a final report.

Applications for TAPS under the ULI-COG Partnership are available here and currently being accepted until 4pm on April 3, 2017. TAP projects will be selected in the spring, with the intent to conduct them between July 2017 – July 2018 (or subject to the sponsor’s needs).

For those sponsors who are selected, ULI will offer a one-year complementary Public Agency Membership Package to ULI. Of note, this membership package includes:

  • One full membership and two associate memberships;
  • Allows memberships to be transferred to other employees within the Public Agency;
  • Should you wish to add additional individuals as members, ULI can offer a reduced rate of $100 under this membership package.
