CCLR is the Technical Assistance to Brownfields (TAB) provider to EPA Regions 2, 9, and 10. This covers the states and territories of Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, the Pacific Islands, Puerto Rico, and Washington.
CCLR’s goal as the TAB provider is to guide communities through the complex processes and requirements particular to brownfield redevelopment. Our assistance enables communities to increase their capacity to independently manage the environmental and financial challenges of land recycling, as well as leveraging significant resources. Our team has worked with a range of brownfield communities, including rural areas struggling with economic and environmental challenges of closed mills or rail sites, tribal lands striving for revitalization, and urban neighborhoods working to remove blight from sites caused by prior industrial uses.
Our online resource center provides information on funding opportunities, contacts, events, and additional resources by state. It’s a great resource to stay up-to-date on the events and opportunities in your region, and also serves as a great starting point to find funding and technical assistance opportunities for your projects.
CCLR provides direct technical assistance to help communities successfully address brownfield challenges within their communities. From the beginning to the end of your redevelopment project, we’ll answer your questions, provide advice and sample documents, and connect you to resources. Some examples of services we provide include:
Our services are available pro-bono to local governments, nonprofits, community groups, and quasi-governmental agencies such as redevelopment agencies or housing authorities. For other groups, we may be able to provide discounted support based on project merit and demonstration of need. Contact us today with your questions, and we’d be happy to help.
