Brownfields present a daunting challenge. They are complex sites, surrounded by additional liability concerns and regulatory processes. But for many communities, redeveloping brownfields is the key to revitalizing their economy, becoming resilient in the face of climate change, and transforming health outcomes.
CCLR is an expert advisor available to support you throughout the lifetime of your redevelopment project. We will meet you where you’re at, help you work through problems, provide you with resources, and connect you with others who can help.
CCLR provides free technical assistance to state and local governments, tribes, non-profits, housing authorities, development agencies, and other public entities through a cooperative agreement with U.S. EPA. We serve EPA Regions 9 and 10, which includes Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, and the Pacific Island territories. If you are part of a private entity or other group, or are located outside of EPA Regions 9 and 10, please see information on our consulting services or contact us for information on how we may be able to provide discounted support based on project merit and demonstration of need.
Our experts have decades of experience working on brownfields projects across the country. View examples of our projects here.
