Brownfields Redevelopment

Brownfields can adversely impact human health, decrease the value of surrounding properties, deter potential investments, and represent a significant safety hazard to the community if left unaddressed.

HR Green is dedicated to helping communities identify and secure funding, formulate and develop planning goals, community vision, and redevelopment strategies.

HR Green’s reputation for brownfields fund procurement was earned by securing 58 EPA grants totaling more than $14 million. Our team is dedicated to helping communities identify and secure funding, formulate and develop planning goals, community vision, and redevelopment strategies. Our grant writers have successfully assisted our client’s with writing the grant applications and securing funding for Brownfields and complementary community redevelopment.

Our involvement in the EPA’s Brownfields program has contributed to the betterment and sustainability of our community clients by reclaiming more than 200 blighted parcels. HR Green helps communities create environmental benefits and tax revenue generating properties by assessing, safely cleaning up, and reusing brownfields. One of the reasons for this success has been the use of our proprietary, GIS-based Brownfield Prioritization Model to scientifically identify, select and prioritize EPA assessments within their communities.

We are helping communities reinvent their urban core economic, social and recreational environments. Brownfields program funding helps return properties exhibiting signs of potential contamination back to a productive reuse. This process helps achieve the following benefits:

  1. Facilitates job growth
  2. Stems urban sprawl by reducing development pressure from agricultural lands
  3.  Avoids costly infrastructure extensions required to serve new greenfield development
  4. Protects human health and the environment
  5. Often spurs additional redevelopment activities
  6. Strengthens and stabilizes neighborhoods
  7. Increases the local tax base
  8. Eliminates eyesores and safety hazards
