The Brownfield Action Plan Program helps grantees create and implement an action plan for a brownfield-impacted area in their community. The program is intended to help communities build capacity, develop partnerships, gather ideas from the public, and collect and organize the information needed to redevelop brownfields successfully. Upon completion of the Plan, communities are better prepared to conduct assessments and cleanup activities, apply for grant and loan funding, market their property to developers, and utilize funds effectively. By planning for the revitalization of an entire area as opposed to one single site, economies of scale are realized and redevelopment can occur in a more coordinated, efficient manner.
The following communities have been selected for pilot round technical assistance and funding, and are currently working toward completing their Brownfield Action Plans.
