This EBC New Hampshire program will focus on recent improvements to the EPA Brownfields Program made possible by the 2018 Better Utilization of Investments Leading to Development Act (BUILD Act). The program welcomes EPA Brownfields staff to discuss how the BUILD Act will improve the execution of EPA funded Brownfields projects. You will also learn how EPA Brownfields funds are helping to facilitate redevelopment successes in New Hampshire. Representatives from the Upper Valley Lakes Sunapee Regional Planning Commission (UVLSRPC) and City of Claremont will discuss the positive impact of Brownfields funding on New Hampshire community Brownfield’s programs. Finally, the moderated panel discussion will discuss how the BUILD Act can be further leveraged to create even more success and facilitate redevelopment projects. Adequate time will be provided for active audience Q & A.
