This webinar is targeted at audiences in Puerto Rico and will be held in Spanish.

Puerto Rico ha utilizado con éxito el programa TBA de la EPA para evaluar terrenos y propiedades abandonadas en toda la isla. En este seminario online, revisaremos los beneficios del programa y le mostraremos cómo solicitar la asistencia con éxito y avanzar en el desarrollo de su brownfield. El programa de TBA ayuda a las organizaciones sin fines de lucro a evaluar y determinar las inversiones necesarias para el desarrollo de esos sitios contaminados y/o abandonados que entorpecen la economía local. Como resultado de la evaluación, el TBA minimiza la incertidumbre  acerca de la contaminación real en estos lugares que no han podido ser desarrollados. Si su comunidad ha identificado uno o más lugares que puedan ser brownfields y beneficiarse de este proceso del TBA, regístrese a continuación.
