Get your Game On – Preparing to Win in the Fall 2021 Brownfields Grant Competition
April 27 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm| Free
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. We encourage participants to invite members of their Brownfields team to join the webinar.
