Alaska Forum on the Environment – Lean on Us: Technical Assistance to Brownfields Resources in Alaska
The Alaska Forum on the Environment (AFE) is back for its first hybrid event from February 6-10, 2023 at the Dena’ina Convention Center in Anchorage, AK! This conference provides an opportunity for government agencies, non-profit and for-profit businesses, community leaders, Alaska’s youth, conservationists, biologists and community elders to come together and discuss the latest projects, processes, and issues that affect the environment in Alaska. Join CCLR’s own Senior Technical Consultant John Carnahan and Tribal TAB’s Director Scott Nightingale at their session Lean on Us for All Your Brownfields Needs! An Introduction to Technical Assistance to Brownfields Resources in Alaska to learn about CCLR and Tribal TAB‘s land reuse services and how to prepare for a revitalization project.
The Center for Creative Land Recycling (CCLR) and Tribal TAB are dedicated to providing technical assistance, regulatory, planning, and development resources to communities taking on brownfield initiatives. As the Region 10 Technical Assistance to Brownfields (TAB) provider, CCLR will briefly discuss brownfield history and fundamentals before diving into current funding opportunities for brownfield projects, and their free technical assistance services which are available to communities with active or potential brownfield sites. As part of their one-on-one services, CCLR provides grant writing support and reviews, community visioning and planning for reuse, resource and redevelopment roadmaps, grant management training, and more. Tribal TAB works closely with federal and state agencies to assist communities/tribes in their revitalization efforts of brownfields sites and brings university educational and technical resources as well as industry/consulting experience to communities affected by environmental issues at brownfield sites.
No brownfield question is too small! CCLR and Tribal TAB are committed to the success of the communities we serve by providing support during each step of the brownfield redevelopment process and assistance in navigating potential challenges. Attend this session to receive the resources you need to feel confident in addressing community concerns and engaging in impactful land reuse.
