Brownfields

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.

We help communities create environmental benefits and tax revenue-generating properties by assessing, safely cleaning up, and reusing brownfields. The EPA brownfields program funding helps return properties exhibiting signs of potential contamination back to productive reuse. Our team of planners, environmental scientists, and grant writers work to:

  • Secure funding, formulate and develop planning goals, sharpen community vision, and redevelopment strategies
  • Reinvent urban cores to generate economic, social, and recreational spaces and environments
  • Procure EPA grants for communities (58 successful grants totaling more than $14 million to date)
  • Reclaim blighted parcels (more than 200 to date)
