DEP’s Land Recycling Program (LRP) will be hosting a Brownfields Grant Webinar on August 25, 2022. Attendees will receive a brief overview of brownfields properties and the Act 2 program followed by a description of potential brownfields grant opportunities. Participants will hear from experts from DEP, PA Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED), and West Virginia University’s Technical Assistance to Brownfield Communities Program (WVU TAB) who will discuss the different state and federal brownfield grant options and how the recent influx of brownfields grant funding from the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) will impact these funding opportunities. This webinar is intended for developers and communities that may be new to brownfields and the various grants that can help fund assessments and cleanups.
The LRP will host and additional webinar on September 28, 2022 to provide detailed information about the guidelines and deadlines for the application process for these grants. This will also include presenters from DEP and WVU TAB and is intended for experienced brownfields professionals as well as those new to the concept so that all participants can acquire the knowledge and contacts they need to help navigate the processes of obtaining funding for brownfields projects within PA.
