Tuesday, April 27, 2021

11:30 AM Pacific | 12:30 PM Mountain | 1:30 PM Central | 2:30 PM Eastern
 
What do March Madness, the World Series and Brownfields Grants have in common? A great plan, few unforced errors, and lots of ‘heart.’ In a competitive field, the Brownfields reuse playbook can include economic development, housing, open space, climate change, environmental justice, reinforced by funds from state and federal agencies. Upfront planning and the ‘heart’ in the effort is often what leads to the most successful outcomes. Come hear about tips for boosting your community’s revitalization efforts, how to become even more competitive, and how to win a Brownfields grant for your community. Get your game on!
 
The webinar will discuss upfront planning and areas communities should focus on now, in order to be more competitive in the FY22 EPA Brownfield Multipurpose, Assessment, Revolving Loan Fund and Cleanup
(MARC) grant competition this fall.
 
Who should attend?
Local Governments, Coalitions, Nonprofits, Tribes and States who are thinking about applying for a Brownfield Cooperative Agreement to assess and/or clean up environmentally distressed properties for community revitalization purposes.

Passed and Proposed: What the Federal Budget Means for Brownfield Redevelopment

Thursday, April 29, 2021

11am-12pm PST | 2-3pm EST
 
You’ve no doubt heard of the Moving Forward Act and President Biden’s proposed Build Back Better Plan, but did you know that both include major provisions that support brownfields redevelopment and land reuse? The Moving Forward Act authorizes $2.25 billion for the EPA Brownfields program for FY 2021 through FY 2025; Build Back Better, if passed, would support community-wide revitalization initiatives including brownfields redevelopment as it applies to clean energy development, climate resilience, environmental justice, and more. And we haven’t even mentioned the newly reinstated congressional earmarks or current agency appropriations!
 
Join the Center for Creative Land Recycling, Sustainable Strategies DC, U.S. EPA’s Office of Brownfields and Land Revitalization, and the Council for Development Finance Agencies for an in-depth discussion on federal funding coming down the pike and how you can, and should, leverage it to turn neighborhood liabilities into community assets.
 
Speakers:
David Lloyd | Director of Office of Brownfields and Land Revitalization | U.S. EPA
Matt Ward | Co-Founder and CEO | Sustainable Strategies
Darnell Moses | Vice President | Council for Development Finance Agencies
