Webinar: Brownfields BUILD Act
Smart Growth America will host a webinar on the Brownfields Utilization, Investment and Local Development (BUILD) Act, recently introduced by Senators Lautenberg (D-NJ), Inhofe (R-OK), Crapo (R-ID), and Udall (D-NM). The BUILD Act of 2013 would reauthorize U.S. EPA's Brownfields Program. It would also expand non-profit eligibility to receive brownfields grants and allow the U.S. EPA to award flexible multipurpose grants to take into account the varied nature of many projects. Register here. For more information, contact Colleen Cain, Senior Policy Analyst at the Northeast-Midwest Institute.
