University Technical Assistance Program


The University Technical Assistance Program (UTA) is a unique partnership between Colorado Center for Community Development (CCCD) at the University of Colorado Denver and DOLA that provides technical design assistance to rural communities that may not have access to resources needed for public improvement projects.

UTA offers graduate students in community planning processes and design, architecture, landscape architecture, and planning opportunities to transform knowledge into hands-on experience by working with clients on real projects. Communities see projects move forward from ideas to concepts that can be used to build local support and seek funding.
