$48 million.  That’s the amount of available funding recently announced by the U.S. EPA for brownfields assessment, cleanup, and revolving loan fund capitalization.  Over the last two decades, EPA funding has helped hundreds of communities across the United States assess and cleanup their formerly used commercial and industrial sites, paving the way for beneficial new uses.  The current due date for submitting your application is December 3, 2019, so get your proposal team ready and writing for this annual opportunity.  Go to www.grants.gov to download the grant application information.

And while cleaning up and reusing your community’s brownfield sites is on your mind, make plans to attend the EPA and ICMA cosponsored National Brownfields Conference in Los Angeles, December 11-13, 2019 (with pre-conference programming on December 10th).  You’ll learn the latest innovations on creating more sustainable communities and network with federal, state, and local officials.  It is the premier educational, training, and peer to peer conference for all sustainable redevelopment stakeholders.
