OPM: Comprehensive Planning and Intergovernmental Policy Division

Comprehensive Planning and Intergovernmental Policy Division
 

CPIP Mission

The primary goal of the Comprehensive Planning and Intergovernmental Policy Division (CPIP) is to formulate and implement state policy pertaining to the relationship between the State of Connecticut and municipal governments, and for conservation and development of land and water resources.

The two units within CPIP are:

  • Office of Responsible Growth
  • Assessment, Data Collection, and Grants Management
CPIP was created in July 2017 from the merger of two former divisions  the Intergovernmental Policy Division (IGP) and the Transportation, Conservation, and Development Policy and Planning Division (TCDPP) as part of a streamlining effort within OPM.  References to the former divisions should be replaced with CPIP.
