There has never been a better time to get ready to cleanup and buildup brownfield properties. Federal recovery and stimulus packages offer funding that can be tied to community revitalization, and investors are realizing that redeveloping a brownfield is simply a real estate transaction with an environmental twist. So get ready to pitch your site! The Rodeo provides an opportunity to do a deeper dive into understanding how to get that environmentally-impaired or underutilized property back into a productive use and back on your tax base! No matter what stage of redevelopment it’s in, this is your chance to get feedback from developers and redevelopment experts on your presentation and property’s roadmap to redevelopment. Please complete the following questionnaire and provide as much information as possible about the site you are seeking redevelopment support for. 

EPA’s Technical Assistance to Brownfield communities (TAB) providers (Kansas State University,  Center for Creative Land Recycling, and New Jersey Institute of Technology) will select three submissions for an opportunity to pitch at the National Brownfields Conference on Friday, December 10, 2021 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.  All three will get up to $10,000 in pro bono support focused on your specific challenges.  (If you are unsure whether you will attend NBC, let us know and APPLY NOW!) 

Our goal is to build capacity, increase the profile of your site, and connect you with developers and resources to accelerate your redevelopment timeline.

We are available to answer any questions about the process or application. Please contact Joelle Greenland at joelle.greenland@cclr.org.
