Brownfields Stakeholder Listening Session with Nonprofits and Community Foundations 

by Aimee Storm 

On April 23, 2021 over 300 representatives from nonprofits, community foundations and other organizations across the country shared their thoughts with EPA about nonprofit leadership, benefits and barriers surrounding brownfields cleanup and reuse projects. Many of these organizations are embedded within local communities, working to address the disproportionate health, environmental, economic, and climate impacts on disadvantaged communities. Brownfield sites and other contaminated properties within these communities contribute to or exacerbate these issues within local communities.  

If you were unable to join us on April 23, please watch the session recording available now on EPA’s YouTube channel.
