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, etc; 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, and U.S. EPA’s Office of Brownfields and Land Revitalization 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 will consider: – Passed budget appropriations/funding that could impact your projects. – Proposed funding in infrastructure and other bills: How much, what does it cover, and how do you access it? – How these new redevelopment financing opportunities intersect with other federal agency priorities and state programs; – How do you prepare for the cascade of federal funding? What actions should you be taking NOW? – Ways to stay connected and support legislation promoting brownfield redevelopment. This webinar is being organized by the Center for Creative Land Recycling (CCLR), the leading national nonprofit championing the beneficial reuse of abandoned or contaminated properties for community benefit.
