Brownfield Assistance Open House Scheduled for April 7

The Kentucky Brownfield Redevelopment Program invites communities and those interested in brownfield redevelopment to an open house event that can assist you with your current and future projects.

The department will host a Technical Assistance to Brownfields (TAB) Open House on Friday, April 7, 2017, from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. EDT. The event will put your community in touch with organizations that can help provide brownfield training, funding identification, grant and technical assistance and project guidance.

The New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT), the Center for Creative Land Recycling (CCLR) and the Council of Development Finance Agencies (CDFA) will all be on hand to talk about aspects of your project. Whether just an idea or something that is already in process, these experts can provide guidance.

  • Developing and assisting with community involvement regarding site cleanups,

  • Developing strategies for brownfield redevelopment,
  • Identifying funding and resources,
  • Facilitating stakeholder participation,
  • Assisting with Revolving Loan Fund Grants,
