Division of Compliance Assistance Announces Schedule for Meet the Funders Redevelopment Workshops

Staff members from the Kentucky Division of Compliance Assistance (DCA), along with federal and state experts and seasoned brownfield redevelopment practitioners, will speak at three redevelopment workshops offered in May. Learn how and where to obtain funding and manage projects to redevelop previously used sites, including brownfields, into housing, parks, trails and job-creating businesses. These free workshops are designed for local governments, economic and community development departments, councils of government, nonprofits and any other organizations interested in sustainable development. Experts will be on hand to discuss funding sources, project management and give you the advice you need to move your project forward.

Presenters include: 

  • Kentucky Department for Environmental Protection’s Division of Compliance Assistance
  • U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Region 4
  • U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development
  • U.S. Economic Development Administration
  • U.S. Department of Agriculture
