The EPA recently released its list of the 2014 brownfield assessment, cleanup, and revolving loan fund grantees, with over $67 million gong to communities across the nation. CCLR is excited to have helped with dozens of successful applications, and we look forward to the progress that will be made on these important projects.
"Not only are these funds protecting the environment and public health by helping communities clean up blighted toxic waste sites, there are new job growth opportunities for local economies to leverage through these investments," said Gina McCarthy, EPA Administrator. "With cities looking at how to combat the impacts of climate change, it's more important than ever for communities to innovate new ways to retrofit formerly polluted sites into assets for the community."
Congratulations to all!
