Sustainability & Brownfields: Supporting a Sustainable Economy & Environment
What is sustainability to you? Is it economic? Is it environmental? Something else? This session
will present the big picture of how sustainability applies to planning, design, economic
development, and how to connect the dots between these different activities through the lens
of brownfield redevelopment.
ARC Grants: Funding Tools for Land Reuse
The EPA and IDEQ offer a variety of funding resources for assessment and cleanup of
brownfields, both directly to local governments and nonprofits, as well as indirectly through
state‐administered programs. Additionally, other federal and state agencies offer funding and
resources that can be used for infill projects. CCLR and IDEQ will provide you with a multiagency
toolbox of funding resources that could help fund your next redevelopment project.
Grant Tips & Strategies, Q&A
This session will bring today’s lessons into focus by providing useful tips and pointers for those
considering and preparing to apply for U.S. EPA ARC Grants, and providing overviews of
successful land recycling and sustainable redevelopment projects.
