Who Developed the CCAA?
The University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) and the Rights-of-Way as Habitat Working Group led the development of the collaborative CCAA/CCA. The UIC established a joint fund in January 2018 to pool funding from collaborators across the energy and transportation sectors. Collaborators also provided in-kind time and technical expertise to support the CCAA/CCA development.
More than 40 partners, along with the Service, industry experts, and other collaborators make up the CCAA Task Force. Additional technical assistance is provided by Cardno, the Environmental Policy Innovation Center and the University of Georgia Business Law Clinic. UIC also serves as the Programmatic Administrator for the agreement.
