Defending the National Brownfields Program in an Era of Uncertainty; The FY 2018 Budget Process

View the Webinar here. The President recently outlined his budget priorities and the FY 2018 Congressional appropriations process will soon be underway. The President’s proposed budget zeroes out the HUD Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) and cuts overall EPA funding by 30 percent. As a result, all programs that support brownfields and community redevelopment are extremely vulnerable.  

This webinar will focus on strategies for protecting funding for the EPA brownfields program and other federal programs that support community revitalization and economic development, including the HUD Community Development Block Grants, the U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development Program, and the Economic Development Administration Public Works and Infrastructure Grants. 

- The timeline and process for determining FY 2018 funding levels for federal brownfields programs. 
- Strategies for building bipartisan support for brownfields and community redevelopment. 
- Specific actions you can take to maintain momentum for the brownfields and community revitalization industry.
